Summary:

Healthcare professionals in most disciplines encounter patients with pain every day. Whether responsible for making assessments, prescribing treatment, or managing care, the professional must continuously make decisions on how to care for a patient with pain. In the current climate of escalating opioid abuse, it may seem that the struggle to determine “the right thing to do” is even more complex. Often the right answer is blurred by the subjective nature and experience of pain itself. Adding new legal restrictions and guidelines to many analgesic agents (most often opioids) further complicates how patients are scrutinized and treated for their pain. Because the treatment of pain has historically always been a moral endeavor, please join a discussion with a pain management expert to look at how ethics, values, and teamwork may contribute to better care for patients with complex pain management issues. 

Objectives:

The goal of this webinar is to examine and discuss pain management ethics and values-based clinical decision-making among an interdisciplinary audience. Upon completion of the webinar, learners will be able to:
  • Discuss why managing patients’ pain is unique and must be considered in an ethical context.
  • Describe how the four basic principles of ethics are relative to pain management.
  • Discuss how values-based decision-making stems from ethics and influences the management of pain.
  • Review how the healthcare team can work together to support pain management efforts.
