Opioid Counseling Following Orthopaedic Surgery

2019-10-29 14:36:42 | BioPortfolio


Postoperative pain management and opioid consumption following outpatient orthopaedic surgery may be influenced by a number of variables including knowledge of safe opioid use. A prospective randomized study is designed to understand the effect of preoperative opioid counseling on postoperative opioid consumption and the typical opioid consumption patterns following common outpatient orthopaedic surgeries. The hypothesis was that patients who received preoperative opioid counseling will consume less postoperative opioid medication and experience greater satisfaction with pain management.
