Chronic Pain: Managing Without Opioids

March 01, 2018 6:30PM

Treatment of chronic pain requires “multimodal analgesia,” a management plan that often requires pharmacological as well as non-drug therapies, and very importantly large measures of clinician guided patient self-management. The following webinar discusses this further, going over the following topics:

  • Why chronic pain pharmacological treatment should not be opioid mono-therapy.
  • The role and value of non-drug options for management of chronic pain.
  • The clinical value and potential side-effects of commonly used “adjuvant” drugs in the management of chronic pain, including anti-inflammatories, antidepressants, and anticonvulsants.
  • Why, when, and how alternatives to opioids improve outcomes of your pain management plan ​


This webinar is co-sponsored by WWDPI and Pain BC.
