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.
