Event description

Description

Are you a FAMILY PHYSICIAN, NURSE PRACTITIONER, DENTIST or PHARMACIST struggling with repeated requests for early opioid refills, larger amounts or higher doses? Are you increasingly concerned for your safety, or that of your staff or patients? Then this course is for you.

The Prescribing Course-Safe Opioid Prescribing is a one day course covering opioid prescribing from assessment to tapering. Developed with support from the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness, the course is a one-day, small group, interdisciplinary program of case based education with brief lectures highlighting major learning points.

By taking this course, you will gain crucial knowledge necessary to prescribe or dispense these medications safely. You will learn about the following key topics:

  • Pain and Opioid risk assessment
  • Conducting an opioid trial
  • Monitoring opioid use including interpretation of urine drug testing
  • Identification and management of aberrant behaviors
  • Management of opioid side effects
  • The adopted patient on opioid therapy
  • Prescribing for patients who travel
  • Maintaining boundaries
  • Quick reference guide and tools for everyday use

All attendees receive a hard copy and electronic course manual with user-friendly “how to” information designed for daily use. Each course will be limited to a minimum of 20 and maximum of 50 participants.

Comments from past attendees:
