Description:

The high frequency of utilization of the hospital ED by patients seeking care for non-emergent dental conditions provided the impetus for Mercy Health, Ohio’s largest healthcare provider, to develop strategic approaches to pain management and the opioid crisis by creating a definitive care concept, an evidence-based pain management curriculum, a substance abuse screening tool, and strategic utilization of the electronic medical record to track inappropriate prescribing profiles to alert and educate prescribers relative to best practices.

After completing this courses, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the development, operational approach and rationale for implementing the Definitive Care Concept
  • Recognize evidence-based approaches to pain management including preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative approaches
  • Recognize the benefits of creating tools to improve identification of at-risk patients, encourage early treatment referrals, establish acute withdrawal protocols and provide more efficient access to available PDMP databases
