CEU Course Description
Chronic noncancer pain (CNCP) is common in the general population as well as in people who have a substance use disorder (SUD). Chronic pain is not harmless; it has physiologic, social, and psychological dimensions that can seriously harm health, functioning, and well-being. This CEU course equips nurses with practical guidance and tools for treating CNCP in adults with histories of SUDs. It also provides information about SUD assessments and referrals for further evaluation. For patients with histories of SUDs, the most controversial and possibly hazardous pain treatment in widespread use is opioid treatment. For this reason, this topic receives significant attention.
