PVMA General Membership Meeting & CE Presentation: "What Pain?!": Adjusting to the Opioid Crisis/Epidemic
"What Pain?!": Adjusting to the Opioid Crisis/Epidemic

The talk will begin with a brief mention of the “evolution” of the current opioid crisis/epidemic leading to opioid shortages – “THE ANALGESICS” of choice by most. Attendees will be reminded of “this thing called PAIN”; understanding different types of pain – not all the same treatment. The talk will conclude with a discussion on the veterinary team’s responsibility/flexibility in adjusting to the current opioid shortage with suggestions of different drugs and modalities.

Limited to current PVMA and OVTAA members. Will be recorded and shared with members for those unable to join us live.

1.5 Credit of CE available.

Nov 12, 2020 07:00 PM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
