Brunch With the Experts: Addressing Challenges and Personalizing Care in Post-Surgical Pain Management

Brunch With the Experts: Addressing Challenges and Personalizing Care in Post-Surgical Pain Management

Addressing Challenges and Personalizing Care in Post-Surgical Pain Management – Brunch With the Experts
Saturday, November 12, 2016
8:30 am – 10:00 am PT
10:30 am – 12:00 pm CT
11:30 am – 1:00 pm ET


Addressing Challenges and Personalizing Care in Post-Surgical Pain Management – Brunch With the Experts is a live continuing medical education (CME)-certified symposium that will be held before a studio audience, and will be broadcast to 6 locations across the United States.
Acute post-surgical pain can increase time in the hospital, readmissions, and risk for chronic pain, as well as decrease quality of life and patient satisfaction. Effective pain control should be a cornerstone of the surgical plan for patients with breast cancer. Multimodal, multidisciplinary pain analgesia strategies aim to reduce pain and opioid use throughout the pre-, peri, and postoperative settings. Many of the risks associated with perioperative opioid use can be mitigated with modern pharmacologic intervention, thorough planning, and effective communication and coordination across the care team.
This activity will update practitioners on advances in post-surgical pain management for patients with breast cancer. Topics for discussion will include strategies for delivering multimodal pain management, personalizing care, and measuring pain intensity. It will feature didactic faculty presentations, discussion of clinical scenarios that illustrate available evidence behind treatment decisions, video demonstrations, and Q&A to encourage peer-to-peer and peer-to-expert interactions, as well as the sharing of best practices.

Target Audience

The live educational program is directed toward medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists looking to improve their knowledge of strategies to manage post-surgical pain in patients with breast cancer. The online program will be directed towards medical and surgical oncologists, fellows, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with breast cancer.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:
  1. Discuss the etiology of pain in the surgical patient with cancer and the impact of uncontrolled surgical pain
  2. Review the goals of multimodal pain management and the phases of care for which these strategies can be utilized in patients with cancer
  3. Discuss the pros and cons of opioid and nonopioid analgesics in the multimodal management of pain in the surgical patient with cancer
  4. Describe challenges encountered with the use of multimodal analgesia and strategies that can be applied to mitigate suboptimal pain control in post-surgical settings
  5. Apply best practices concerning the infiltration of anesthetics, including the timing of administration and optimized local infiltration techniques that can extend the duration of analgesia
  6. Explain methods by which pain control can be monitored in post-surgical patients with cancer
