www.opioidaware.org 10 11 Primary Care Chris Echterling, M.D. 12
Primary Care Prescriber education (ex. CDC Guidelines) Opioids are not first line treatment for chronic pain Opioid agreements reflecting informed shared care plan Opioid risks, securing medicine and disposal Dependency vs Addiction Monitoring for safety urine drug tests Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)
13 Scope of the problem 76 million suffer from chronic pain, more than
diabetes, CAD and cancer combined Primary Care CDC Guidelines Opioids are not first line treatment for chronic pain Focus on function, not pain Shorter supplies for acute pain then reevaluate Monitoring for safety (urine drug tests), NOT accusing
Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) 16 Primary Care Preventing diversion Secure your meds dont temp those who are struggling Dispose of left over meds take back boxes or trash Dependency vs Addiction
17 Primary Care Naloxone (Narcan) Prevention Survive accidental overdose (ill, child, confused) Cannot recover if you are dead (deadliest times for those with substance use disorder) Guidelines Higher dose of opioids
History of addiction/overdose You or a family member 19 Medically Assisted Treatment Adam Lake, M.D. 20
Medically Assisted Treatment Addiction is a disease The drug is not the problem Treatment works MAT works the best
21 Medically Assisted Treatment MAT = medication + therapy No clear best type of or intensity of therapy (1-4) Several options for the medication Sources: 1) Dugosh K, Abraham A, Seymour B, McLoyd K, Chalk M, Festinger D.

Why use any medication? 3/20 died from overdoses Kakko J, Svanborg KD, Kreek MJ, Heilig M.

Data from Sordo, et al. BMJ 2017;357:j1550. Visualization from plot.ly 23
Medically Assisted Treatment Methadone Buprenorphine (tablet, film, implant) Naltrexone (oral and long-acting injectable) 24 Medically Assisted Treatment Best treatment of addiction is
medication + therapy Better outcomes, fewer deaths MAT is not trading one addiction for another Many types of counseling can be effective Several options for medications 25 Chronic Pain Management
Vitaly Gordin, M.D. 26 Chronic Pain Management Medical management Interventional pain management procedures Cognitive-behavioral therapy Self directed home exercise program
Complimentary medicine Acupuncture Nutritional consult Life style changes 27 Chronic Pain Management: Medical Management Nonopioid analgesics Acetaminophen
NSAIDs Adjuvant medications Antidepressants, such as TCAs, SNRIs Anticonvulsants, such as gabapentin, pregabalin, topiramate, carbamazepine, etc. 28 Chronic Pain Management: Medical Management
Topical agents Local anesthetics Capsaicin TCAs, NSAIDs, gabapentinoids IV anesthetics: ketamine 29 Chronic Pain Management: Medical Management Opioid analgesics
CDC declared opioid induced deaths as a national epidemic Doctors wrote 72.4 opioid prescriptions per 100 persons in 2006 Decreased 4.9% annually from 2012 through 2016 Reaching a rate of 66.5 per 100 persons in 2016. A record number of drug overdose deaths occurred in 2015 52,404, prescription or illicit opioids were involved in 63.1% of these deaths
30 Chronic Pain Management: Medical Management Properly selected patients with findings on physical examination might benefit from chronic opioid therapy
Use screening tools Opioid agreements UDS (urine drug screen) Pill count PDMP Doses higher than 90 MME are not recommended, but there are exceptions
33 Mental Health/Co-occurring 45% of Americans seeking treatment have dual diagnosis Substance Abuse Disorder Mental Health Illness Substance Abuse Disorder Criteria defined in DSM 5
34 Mental Health/Co-occurring Most Americans recognize mental health is a biological problem Still dont want someone with mental illness as a neighbor or friend Many try to self medicate Honey, just have a drink, it will calm your
nerves Marijuana use Self medication can lead to abuse 35 Mental Health/Co-occurring Treated separate until 1990s Sequential treatment was the norm No longer a hard line between diagnoses or treatment
Integrated Approach now used No single option for every combination Must personalize 36 Mental Health/Co-occurring Begin treatment mental health disorder at the same time as substance abuse You dont know which came first
Combination therapy Medications Behavior Modification Coping Mechanisms Modification of traditional techniques 37 Mental Health/Co-occurring Early treatment is key Integrated approach is necessary
Recovery occurs over months to years Long term, community based approach is needed for success 38 Opioid Forum September 15, 2017 Pregnancy & Newborns
Susan Peck, D.O. 40 Pregnancy & Newborns Opiate use in pregnancy increased 5 times in the last decade Increase of NAS 5 times from 1.2 to 5.8 /1000 hospital births Screening of pregnant women Medically assisted treatment methadone and
buprenorphine Medically assisted withdrawal during pregnancy 41 Pregnancy & Newborns Prenatal care Peripartum pain management Postpartum care Post operative pain management for discharge
42 Pregnancy & Newborns NAS needs 3-5 days for evaluation - can be from MAT, narcotics or other psychoactive drugs Screening needs to be universal Keep mother and baby dyad together Encourage breast feeding
43 Pregnancy & Newborns Future needs for opioid use in pregnancy: Obstetric research with optimal screening, treatment and care and postpartum care and medically supervised withdrawal in pregnancy Neonatal focus: Better scoring system that helps determine pharmacologic management Optimal nonpharm and pharm approaches to management
Information on long term effects of MAT Understand genetics and train multidisciplinary providers 44 Emergency Medicine Greg S. Swartzentruber, M.D. Emergency Medicine: Perspective
Emergency Medicine: The Problem Many focus EDs role as a pipeline for opioid prescriptions EDs account for only 5% of opioids ED physicians are low-risk providers Contribute very little to opioids prescribed to patients with OUD
Emergency Medicine: The Opportunity Emergency Medicine: The Warm Hand-Off Evaluation by substance abuse specialist Initiation of treatment Direct referral to treatment
Emergency Medicine: The Solution The ED: The Solution? Screening, brief intervention, referral to treatment (SBIRT) Screening, treatment initiation, and referral (STIR) Emergency Medicine
The ED: The Solution? Hospitals Frank E. Mozdy, M.D. 52 Hospitals
Complex medical care, psychosocial needs, handoffs to outpatient followup Increasing burden of opioid related care Policies 34% ICU Admits Withdrawal treatment & MAT therapy 58% Costs Addressing violent encounters Harm reduction education for users
53 Hospitals: Withdrawal vs Treatment Acute withdrawal Opioid substitution Methadone or buprenorphine rapidly tapered Supportive medications
Blocking withdrawal symptoms with clonidine Treat individual symptoms Diarrhea, nausea, muscle spasms, insomnia, anxiety, etc. 54 Hospitals: Withdrawal vs Treatment Medication Assisted Treatment No special waver to start MAT in hospital
Methadone, buprenorphine Opioid blocker (Vivitrol) Must only be done with proper link to outpatient MAT program and counseling 55 Hospitals: Harm Reduction
Safe injection education Opioid overdose education Naloxone prescription on discharge Syringe exchange programs 56 Hospitals: Other Considerations
Treating acute pain for MAT patients or on other opioids Polysubstance use Risky prescribing patterns in community Availability of addiction specialists Rural & resource-limited areas New Joint Commission pain standards 57 Hospitals:
New Joint Commission Pain Standards Facilitate non-pharmacologic pain treatment Facilitate access to PDMP for clinicians Prioritize pain assessment & management Minimize pain treatment risks Monitor performance with data collection/analysis Actively involve clinical leaders to improve care & services 58
