Ethics Noon Lecture: “Beyond Opioids: Bioethical Issues in Pain Management”

Title: Ethics Noon Lecture: “Beyond Opioids: Bioethical Issues in Pain Management”
Date & Time: Mar 20, 2019 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location: Tamkin Auditorium, B-130 at RRMC

 

The UCLA Health Ethics Lecture Series is an ongoing program aimed to healthcare professionals on current ethical issues in healthcare.  Each one-hour session is presented in a didactic format with additional time for questions and discussion.  Topics are picked to be informative and to raise awareness concerning challenging ethical issues that are increasingly present in healthcare today.

This talk addresses some of the ethical, social, and legal implications surrounding the inequitable undertreatment of chronic pain in the U.S. Importantly, the presentation emphasizes the need to see difficulties in treating chronic pain and difficulties with the safe and effective use of opioids as distinct clinical and population health problems. The presentation justifies this distinction and proceeds to identify interventions that can be used to ameliorate the inequitable undertreatment of pain.

Learning Objectives: Upon completing this course, healthcare professionals will be able to:

  1. Explain why the inequitable undertreatment of chronic pain & the safe and effective use of opioids are distinct health problems;
  2. Explain why the inequitable undertreatment of chronic pain is inconsistent with mandates of social justice; and
  3. Identify two interventions that can improve the inequitable undertreatment of chronic pain in the U.S.
