    Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) conference call Wednesday, August 3, 2016.

    Although evidence supports short-term effectiveness of opioids to treat pain, there is insufficient data that long-term use of opioids effectively treats chronic pain. In fact, long-term use of opioids in high doses can contribute to opioid-use disorder and overdose. Therefore, long-term opioid therapy should only be used when the benefits outweigh the risks. During this COCA Call, presenters will explore a case study on how recommendations from the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain were used to ascertain the associated benefits and risks when a patient with fibromyalgia was prescribed oxycodone following a motor vehicle crash.

    This is the third webinar in a COCA Call series about CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain.
