Manuscript "Effective Opioid-Free Pain Relief"

Post-Op Instruction Sheet
Relaxation Exercise Script

Course Description: Effective pain management is a priority in dental practice. One of the tools utilized by the dentists was the prescription of opioids, as they were considered effective in alleviating postoperative acute pain. Recent studies commissioned by the FDA and CDC have concluded that there are more effective means, including prescription NSAIDS and nonpharmacological interventions. According to the CDC, from 2000 to 2015 more than half a million people died from drug overdoses. In fact, 91 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. In some cases, the first time patients received a prescription for an opioid drug is from their dentist. Our profession is now addressing the crisis.
Course Objectives - Upon completion of this course, attendees will learn about pain management methods and techniques that are opioid-free, safe, effective, and are in compliance with Act 76 of the Louisiana Legislature and the Louisiana State Board of Dentistry rules for license renewal.  Topics that will be discussed include:
  • The Opioid Epidemic and dentistry’s role.
  • Opioid Medications – benefits, side effects and contraindications.
  • Understand Pain – Is it plainly in the brain.
  • Doctor-Patient relationship in the management of acute pain.
  • Benefits of prescription and over-the-counter NSAID medications.
  • The value of the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PMP).
  • Diversion training and addiction treatment.

At the conclusion of the presentation participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the best practices for pain management.
  2. Implement alternative methods for management of acute pain.
  3. Understand how dentists are part of the “opioid crisis” solution.
Course type: Lecture, Course credit: 3.5 clinical hours.
