Description:CDC guideline for prescribing opioids for chronic pain : effective communication with patients about opioid therapy / Deborah Dowell -- Effective communication with patients about opioid therapy / Joseph Merrill, David Tauben
Effective communication between patient and provider is critical when initiating opioid therapy. Often providers will need to adjust prescribing practices and motivate patients to stay committed to the changes. During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn how to apply principles of motivational interviewing and a six-step process that is patient-centered and supports clinical judgment when conflict arises. Presenters will review two case studies in which they will apply communication strategies, and provide examples of patient-provider dialogue.
This is the seventh webinar in a COCA Call series about CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain.
