Mayo Clinic physicians discuss the new opioid prescribing guidelines and share real-life examples from their practice. The topics include assessing the patient’s candidacy for opioid therapy, and when deemed appropriate, what drug, duration and dose is recommended. Addiction and opioid use disorder are also discussed. Through Q&A, learn prescribing guidelines and how to address difficult patient conversations about addiction. This course is appropriate for physicians, nurse practitioners, physicians’ assistants, nurses and pharmacists; and particularly relevant for primary care physicians who maintain and monitor patients on chronic opioid therapy.
