Description

Chronic noncancer pain (CNCP) is common in the general population as well as in people who have a substance use disorder (SUD). Chronic pain is not harmless; it has physiologic, social, and psychological dimensions that can seriously harm health, functioning, and well-being. This CEU course equips nurses with practical guidance and tools for treating CNCP in adults with histories of SUDs. It also provides information about SUD assessments and referrals for further evaluation. For patients with histories of SUDs, the most controversial and possibly hazardous pain treatment in widespread use is opioid treatment. For this reason, this topic receives significant attention.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss content areas for patient education.

2. Investigate the factors that may complicate an assessment of pain and function in patients with SUD histories.

3. Examine the questions the nurse should ask if a patient reports drinking within the past year.

4. Elucidate the commonalities between chronic pain and addiction.

5. Identify the substances that may put patients at an increased risk of serotonin syndrome.

6. Describe aberrant drug-related behaviors that resemble those of patients with addiction but that actually result from inadequate treatment of pain.
