Safe Opioid Use Amid an Opioid Epidemic
Safe Opioid Use Amid an Opioid Epidemic
The climate of pain management has changed since the 1990's. The CDC currently reports that 130 Americans die every day due to an opioid overdose (including Rx and illicit opioids). Everyone likely knows someone who is struggling with a substance use disorder.

During the current opioid epidemic, how do nurses ensure the safe use of opioids for patients with moderate to severe pain? What pain management skills do we need to master to keep our patients and families safe?
