Advanced practice nurses’ role in opioid stewardship

Tuesday, June 18, 2019, 12 to 1 pm ET

Register today!

Stewardship is a patient-centred, interdisciplinary approach for improving prescribed drug therapy. However, evidence suggests that within established stewardship models for prescribed drugs (e.g., antimicrobials) nursing roles are underutilized even though nurses are ideally placed to contribute significantly in optimizing stewardship endeavours.

Within existing models of care, advanced practice nurses can prescribe opioid analgesics for patients experiencing acute and chronic pain. At the end of this webinar, you’ll be able to define the concept of opioid stewardship and the roles of advanced practice nurses in opioid management. You’ll learn about the enablers, barriers and opportunities for advanced practice nurses to optimize opioid stewardship within their care settings.

Presented by:
