Curbing the Opioid Epidemic: Taking Steps to Improve Postsurgical Outcomes for Your Patients With Breast Cancer Overview

Patients who undergo surgical procedures as a part of the management of breast cancer are susceptible to postsurgical pain, which may adversely affect both acute and long-term outcomes. Multimodal approaches to pain management are being employed that may lead to improved outcomes for your patients, and an increasing volume of evidence is supportive of opioid-sparing analgesic regimens. Evidence-based pain management protocols often require close multidisciplinary collaboration. Securing adequate pain management is an incredibly complex challenge for clinicians; individual patient characteristics and procedural considerations need to be evaluated to optimize pain management strategies in the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative stages.

To help you to meet these challenges, this compelling program will feature the perspectives of clinical experts in surgical oncology and anesthesiology who will explore various aspects of contemporary pain management strategies. Clinical case scenarios will be reviewed to help contextualize recent evidence pertaining to pain management. During the faculty panel discussion, audience members are encouraged to share questions from their own experiences with the panel to further promote engagement around clinically challenging situations.

Benefits of Participation:

This exciting, interactive CME event will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Gain insights into surgical pain management approaches that may improve outcomes for your patients with breast cancer
  • Enhance your understanding of the latest evidence pertaining to multimodal pain management
  • Present your challenging surgical pain management cases to the faculty for consultation
  • Network with your colleagues and leading clinical experts in the management of breast cancer
