A Tale of Two Surgeries: Why How We Manage Pain Matters
On average 9% of surgeries result in persistent opioid use. The results of addiction can be catastrophic and result in overdose. Enhanced Recovery is a better way of surgery. Enhanced Recovery uses evidence-based practices regarding opioid-sparing protocols, surgical nurse navigators, and multimodal pain relief.

Join us to meet Kerri Rhodes and her 21-year old daughter, Blair, who share their story of losing their son and brother, Taylor, to an opioid addiction that began after surgery for a sports injury. Kerri will share how non-opioid pain management ensured a safe surgical outcome for surgery for the same sports injury sustained
by her daughter.

We’ll also hear from the Human Resources & Benefits Coordinator from Langdale Industries (Valdosta, GA). Barbara Barrett shares her personal and professional insights on why non-opioid pain management in surgery is a crucial consideration. Many employees with addiction or in recovery delay surgery for fear of opioid pain management. Enhanced Recovery promotes faster healing and helps reduce high-cost claims relating to surgery.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how non-opioid pain medication can reduce the risk of addiction and address surgical pain management
2. Discover how multimodal pain relief using over the counter medications are better suited for surgical pain relief with three times the pain relief than opioids.
3. Understand how employers can help protect health plan members and dependents from unnecessary risk of opioids during surgery.
4. Learn how Enhanced Recovery promotes faster healing and an ROI of $7.70 to $1.
