Community Practice Connections™: A Team-Based Approach to Enhanced Recovery: Controlling Postsurgical Pain in Breast Cancer Patients
Earn up to 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
This activity focuses on optimization of pain control for patients undergoing surgery for breast cancer. It features a series of short video interviews with leading experts in the prevention and management of perioperative pain. The content and interviews are based on presentations given at A Team-Based Approach to Enhanced Recovery: Controlling Postsurgical Pain in Breast Cancer Patients, a live CME-certified symposium held adjunct to the 33rd Annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference®, a PER® Legacy International Conference.

PER Pulse™ Recap
PER Pulse™ Recaps for Community Practice Connections™: A Team-Based Approach to Enhanced Recovery: Controlling Postsurgical Pain in Breast Cancer Patients focuses on areas of clinical challenge faced by practicing clinicians. A brief overview of specific information covered in the online activity is provided in these summaries.

PER Pulse™ Recap

Community Practice Connections™: A Team-Based Approach to Enhanced Recovery: Controlling Postsurgical Pain in Breast Cancer Patients is a series of short video interviews with program faculty Jeff Gadsden, MD, Patrick I. Borgen, MD, and Donna-Marie Manasseh, MD, who address a variety of questions commonly faced by clinicians who care for patients with breast cancer for whom surgery is planned or has been performed. The activity focuses on:

  • Overview of pain theory
  • Best practices in local and regional pain management
  • Integration of an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) strategy for breast surgery

Throughout the activity, the faculty offers practical guidance and provides insights into how new data fit into the current field and, when appropriate, how clinicians can integrate these findings into practice to improve patient care.

This first of 2 PER Pulse™ Recaps summarizing the program focuses on the discussion of pain theory and prevailing problems associated with opioid-based pain management approaches. Persistent pain is common among patients undergoing breast cancer surgery. Inadequate and/or opioid-based perioperative pain management has been associated with increased morbidity/mortality, length of stay (LOS), development of chronic pain, opioid consumption, and expenditures, as well as reduced quality of life and patient satisfaction. To address these problems, perioperative multimodal pain strategies and ERAS approaches are being optimized and implemented. In the online activity, Dr. Gadsden:

  • Summarizes the mechanisms of acute and chronic pain, and problems inherent to poorly controlled acute pain
  • Explains the process of central sensitization that contributes to chronic pain
  • Reviews the principles and practical application of multimodal analgesia as an approach to prevent and manage overall pain, going over each of his recommended multimodal agents individually
  • Recommends round-the-clock administration of nonopioid multimodal agents as first-line pain management

This second of 2 PER Pulse™ Recaps summarizing the program focuses on the discussion of best practices in local and regional pain management, and application of an ERAS strategy in breast cancer. In the online activity:

  • Dr. Borgen summarizes recommendations related to opioid-reducing pain management issued by organizations concerned with healthcare quality
  • Dr. Borgen shares best practices on use of local and regional anesthesia to optimize pain prevention and control while reducing the use of opioid analgesia, including preventive analgesia regimens, nonopioid local-regional anesthetic modalities, overall adherence to an ERAS approach, and inclusion of pain management planning in their WHO Surgical Safety Checklist
  • Dr. Manasseh covers the historical basis for use of an ERAS strategy in breast cancer
  • Dr. Manasseh provides a detailed, case-based review of an evidence-based ERAS approach for breast cancer surgery
