This follow-up webinar is a companion to “The Naltrexone Conundrum: Naltrexone’s Impact on Pain Management in the Perioperative Period” Online Module. The module examines existing practice regarding Naltrexone. Naltrexone offers an approach to abstinence that differs from other current therapies and it attempts to discourage the use of some of the most commonly abused substances currently in the U.S.- mainly narcotics and alcohol. But, one of the biggest barriers to physicians utilizing it more widely is fear of its hindrance on the treatment of pain and a lack of understanding and knowledge on the subject. The presentation will consist of 25 slides on the subject of Naltrexone and its impact on the treatment of pain. The slides will include background information, epidemiology, treatment options and recommendations on the topic, as well as some clinical experiences with this problem.
