Gregory J. Mancini, MD

Founding President

Coalition to Optimize the Management of Pain Association 

Moderator: Frank Federico, RPh

Vice President/Senior Patient Safety Expert

Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI)
























The impact of opioid use has hit the national agenda, with the inappropriate use of opioids now recognized as a public health emergency that is having a significant impact on individuals, families, communities, and health care budgets. It is imperative that the entire health care community and broader community proactively address this issue from a preventative approach. Patients undergoing surgery (inpatient and ambulatory) often receive opioids for pain management, and there is ample opportunity to coproduce multimodal approaches to pain management, where opioid use may be substantially reduced or eliminated. This webcast will offer the rationale and strategies for engaging patients in presurgical conversations and planning for multimodal pain management after surgery.



At the conclusion of this program, you will be able to:

        -  Identify the clinical and societal issues that are impacted by opioid use

        -  Describe the patient safety implications of opioid use

        -  List barriers that may limit engagement of surgical patients in their pain management choices

        -  Describe successful approaches for engaging surgical patients in a discussion around multimodal pain management
