Pain Management Part II; Alternatives to Opioids - EPIX CME

There are many alternative therapies to opioids for a wide variety of painful conditions we may see as emergency and urgent care providers. It’s important to recognize that we can achieve excellent pain relief for our patients while minimizing and often eliminating the use of opioids in their treatment. Let’s change our standard response to pain and balance the need to control pain with dangers of addiction and complications.


EPIX’s second course in the opioid CME series, Pain Management Part II; Alternatives to Opioids, covers the many other alternatives to opioids for pain and best alternatives for specific pain scenarios. Also available to all EPIX insured providers is Pain Management Part I, Opioids in the ED.

What's New in Stroke Part 2 – Lytics and Thrombectomy

 

By Dr. Stephen Colucciello

 

In What's New in Stroke Part 1 we looked at relatively non-controversial topics regarding system issues and supportive care surrounding the ED management of stroke.

THE EPIX DIFFERENCE

Patrick Kelly"EPIX is so much more than an insurance company with whom we trade money for a certificate of insurance. We truly feel we have a partner. From quality CME (which my docs actually enjoy), to first-class administrative staff, to comprehensive assistance when we have an issue, to the transparent way they run the business, EPIX has exceeded our expectations. I wish I had this level of trust with all of our vendors." Read More
