This distance-learning seminar series was created to assist those providing direct patient care with procedures which may result in acute pain. The recorded seminars review how the current situation with drug overdosing evolved and the options currently available to minimize acute pain. Most agree opioid drugs cannot be replaced entirely by clinicians’ treating acute pain. Increasingly, longer acting local anesthetics combined with anti-inflammatory drugs are reducing the need for opioid use. The discussions represent current thinking about alternatives to opioid drugs and a perspective on guidelines on opioid drug prescribing. Current data from clinical opioid drug studies conclude the sessions.
