Analgesic Prescribing in the Opioid Overdose Epidemic: A Milligram of Prevention
May 8, 2019
1:00PM - 2:00PM CST
The opioid overdose epidemic results in approximately 170 deaths every day across America. The dental profession has been responsive to the magnitude of this human tragedy and the overwhelming evidence that NSAIDs, acetaminophen and long-acting local anesthetic formulations result in greater analgesia, less adverse effects and much lower risk of drug diversion, misuse and the development of opioid use disorders. This webinar will provide greater understanding of the multiple forces that are driving this epidemic and suggest how dentists can effectively deal with the root causes of the epidemic.
