The Role of Chiropractic in Opioid Use Reduction
Course ID: 63776 | CCOA ID: 4325 | CE Hours: 2

Collaboratively produced with the OCA, this online course is part of an overall initiative to help chiropractors provide quality care to patients who suffer with chronic pain, partially managed through the use of opioids.

Patients tend to visit their chiropractor more frequently than their prescribing practitioner to receive treatment that manages pain and restores function. The increased opportunity for patient observation can expose potential warning signs which can be communicated to the prescribing practitioner in order for appropriate action to be taken. Ultimately, this leads to better patient care and improved outcomes.

This course is an educational resource for chiropractors to help them appreciate their role in the multi-disciplinary care of such patients, allowing them to increase competency in opioid case outreach and communication with patients and other healthcare professionals.
