Opioids and Other Analgesics (Package 1)

To manage patients with long-term opioid therapy, clinicians require the skills necessary to optimize analgesic outcomes, minimize side effects and toxicities, and assess and manage the risk of abuse-related outcomes. This package of three webinars provides information about the evidence base and best practices relevant to each of these areas.

On-Demand Webinar:

Opioids and Other Analgesics (Package 2)

Patients with moderate or severe chronic pain in the setting of serious or advanced chronic illness should be considered for opioid therapy. Some patients may be good candidates for methadone. Other patients should be considered for co-administration of non-opioid drugs that may augment analgesia or assist in the management of opioid side effects. This package includes three webinars, one focused on the safe and effective use of methadone for pain and two describing the use of non-opioid drugs - "adjuvant analgesics" and medical cannabis - that may be useful therapies when combined with opioids or offered instead.
