Program Overview

Patients with breast cancer who undergo surgical procedures such as mastectomy and breast reconstruction are susceptible to postsurgical pain, which may adversely affect both acute and long-term outcomes. Securing adequate pain management is an incredibly complex challenge for clinicians involved in the care of these patients with new strategies using multimodal approaches continually emerging. Individual patient characteristics and procedural considerations need to be evaluated in order to optimize pain management strategies in the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative stages. In order to help clinicians and patients set and meet appropriate pain management goals, this compelling program will include an interactive panel discussion that delves into a case-based scenario in the management of postsurgical pain. This multidisciplinary panel will feature the perspectives of clinical experts in surgical oncology and anesthesiology who will explore several current pain management strategies, as well as the rationale for use of different strategies. During the faculty panel discussion, audience members are encouraged to share questions from their own clinical experiences with the panel to further promote engagement in challenging situations within the community practice setting and how specific case scenarios may influence treatment selection.

  • Identify the rationale to apply opioid-sparing treatment regimens in the care of patients experiencing postsurgical pain, including in the context of key issues relevant to contemporary pain management
  • Formulate perioperative pain management strategies for challenging patients with breast cancer
