Description

The use of opioid medications has been on the rise over the last decades. There is also an increase in the number of patients developing opioid dependence, and, in many cases, opioid misuse disorder. This has led to increases in visits to emergency department, as well as deaths from opioid overdoses. It is important for pharmacists to be proficient in the use of this class of medications by fully understanding their proper use and administration. This Pain Management Program includes a series of presentations focusing on providing the pharmacist with the knowledge base needed to participate in the pain relief effort. "Pharmacology and Pharmacokinetics of Opioids" addresses an overview of opioid classification and receptor activity. Specifically, the presentation includes information on full and partial agonists, agonist-antagonists, and antagonists.
  
“Pain Management: Pharmacology and Pharmacokinetics of Opioids” is a PHARMACIST continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activity. This course is the home-study recording of an application activity, originally presented by live webinar on April 12, 2017, for health-system pharmacists.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, the pharmacist will be able to:
1. Distinguish between opioid receptors and associated effects upon receptor agonism or antagonism
2. Recommend an appropriate therapeutic course of action in improving pain management for a patient experiencing a potential allergic reaction or tolerance to an opioid
3. Dose adjust an opioid regimen by considering the patient’s current condition and opioid dose
4. Differentiate adverse effects profiles and medication safety concerns between various opioid agents
5. Select an appropriate opioid(s) for a specific patient, based on the known pharmacology of individual opioids
