Many providers have asked, “Now that I know that I should avoid opioids as much as possible, what am I supposed to do about patients’ pain?” This program was developed to help meet that need. Optimizing non-opioid treatment for pain provides patients the safest and most effective pain treatment possible, promoting patient satisfaction and outcomes.
