Pain affects our patients' quality of life and functioning; however, Dentists are challenged by an opioid crisis and strict prescribing laws. It is imperative Dentists are equipped with the knowledge base necessary to navigate pain management and the prescribing laws but they should also be equipped with the tools necessary to effectively treat pain and also identify possible abuse and addiction, and offer alternatives for pain management.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
· Understand and recite the Guidelines for Prescribing and Dispensing Opioids
· Identify and properly refer patients with suspected substance abuse disorders
· Properly utilize the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program to identify possible abuse and/or additional prescription use.
* Understand how natural alternatives to opioids control and affect pain sensation, pain tolerance and pain signaling.
* Describe cannabinoids, kratom, arnica, psilosybin and more for pain management.
* Discuss and define the differences between cannabis and opioids mechanism of action and pharmacology.
