As the number of opioid-related overdose deaths continues to rise, opioid use is one of the top health care issues in the country. Early identification of problematic opioid use and engagement in efforts to educate clinicians are critical in preventing morbidity and mortality. Concerns in pharmacy include increases in dosages of opioids and prescribing of opioids for patients who may not optimally respond. Myriad factors influence patient opioid response. Clinicians should be aware of the contributions of opioid pharmacology and drug interactions to interindividual variations in opioid response. The purpose of this webinar is to advance the national dialogue around the opioid epidemic with a solutions-oriented agenda that identifies opportunities for mitigating those drug interactions that influence opioid response.
