Event Title

Possibility of improving postoperative pain management by improving daily practices

Session

Medicine and Nursing

Description

Persistent postoperative pain is common after most surgical procedures.1 The burden of untreated postoperative pain is high.2 Postoperative pain has been poorly managed for decades. There is good quality evidence that supports many of the common agents utilized in multimodal therapy, however, there is a lack of evidence regarding optimal postoperative protocols or pathways.3 Multimodal pain management provides additional pain relief until the fourth postoperative day, improves patient satisfaction at discharge, and reduces total narcotic consumption for postoperative pain management.
