Event description

Description

For Practice Nurses & Staff

The Southern Nurse Network has been developed in conjunction with Sonder, Flinders University and the Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA).

The Southern Nurse Network provides an avenue for Primary Health Care Nurses working in the southern and central areas of Adelaide to share ideas, network and expand their knowledge regarding education specific to their needs.

Topic: Managing Chronic Pain & the Roles of Opioids

Chronic pain is more common than diabetes. 1 in 5 patients in our practices will be experiencing chronic pain and less than 30% will be receiving optimum care. Dr Chris Bollen will discuss the common understandings of pain and how this corresponds with approaches to managing patient’s pain within the general practice setting. The session will explore why there is a focus on the use of opioids and discuss alternative methods for pain management.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand how to explain pain and the pain cycle.

  • Identify pain management strategies available within the general practice setting.

  • Explore why there is a focus on opioids and identify alternative pain management methods and and resources available.
