Treating Pain in Adolescents, Dr. Lea Eiland
This presentation will focus on treatment options for pain in the adolescent population. Pain may occur after trauma, such as sports injuries or procedures, such as wisdom teeth extraction in this population. Non-pharmacological therapies should be considered, as well as non-opioid pharmacological therapies. Pain management with opioid medications may be indicated, but best practices should be used when prescribing treatments, and patient education should occur to the patient and caregiver. We are in an opioid epidemic crisis at this time. Adolescents, age 12-18 years, experience pain and are prescribed opioids for treatment. Best practices should be utilized with this population when treating pain.
The Opioid Training Institute is a cooperative effort of the Alabama Department of Mental Health and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. It is made possible by a grant provided by SAMHSA.
