Are you in the know about common pain and pain treatment issues facing the clients you serve?
For 20 years, opioids were the first (and sometimes the only) choice doctors offered to patients for pain relief. But, it turns out the risks associated with opioids far outweigh the benefits. Today, we find ourselves in the midst of an immense public health crisis as a result of overuse and misuse of opioids. With one less tool available to bring relief to those who experience pain, healthcare workers are now faced with the challenge of finding alternative ways to provide safe and effective pain management to clients who need it.
