Assessment of Opioid Misuse Risk Among Farmers in the Clinical Setting
Prescription opioids are often the first-line therapy to treat chronic and acute pain among farmers. Prescribing opioids to farmer populations that may not seek regular treatment or have access to alternative therapies increases the risk for potential opioid misuse. Properly assessing for these characteristics among other abuse or addiction risk factors, is critical in providing treatment that is both appropriate and effective. The training module will seek to provide insight on misuse risk factors among farmers to better inform healthcare providers on warning signs in this specific cohort.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- List potential risk factors for opioid misuse among farmers.
- Understand proper opioid misuse assessment strategies.
- Identify effective alternatives for treating chronic and acute pain among farmers
