Event Description

The use of postoperative opioids is associated with higher direct health care costs, greater utilization of medical services, higher risk of opioid dependency, and increased length of stay and readmissions due to opioid-related adverse events. But there is another option - opioids aren’t the only answer to managing post-surgical pain. Non-opioid pain medications, administered directly into the surgical site, have proven highly effective in managing post-surgical pain and greatly reduce the need for opioids. Attend this webinar to learn how employers can play a pivotal role in making these new alternatives available to their members.
