What can Physiotherapists do to help address the Opioid Crisis? The opioid crisis is a North American problem, with an overdose death rate of almost 9 people per- 3 times that of Australia and 9 times that of Europe.
Nearly half of all opioid overdose deaths involved prescription opioids. This session will focus on the what physiotherapists can do to reduce the first prescription to opioids for Canadians. Attendees will gain an: This minute session will provide an overview of the magnitude of the opioid crisis in Canada — how we got to where we are today and the role that physiotherapists can play in addressing this crisis.
The format will be that of a panel discussion. The chair will introduce the panelists and provide a brief overview of the session. Each panelist will present for 10 minutes after which there will be a question and answer period. At the same time that provincial governments delisted physiotherapy services that offer non-pharmaceutical management of pain, there was a concomitant rise in physician prescriptions for opioids as a first line strategy to manage pain.
With evidence that opioid prescriptions for pain is not only ineffective but can result in addiction and death, physiotherapists must collaborate interprofessionally to reverse this strategy by offering non-pharmacologic strategies as a first line management of pain in the primary care sector.
The rate of opioid prescribing increased steadily between Prescriptions of opioids increased dramatically as there was no unsafe ceiling on the frequency or dose prescribed to ameliorate pain.
While the benefits of opioids for pain relief remain uncertain, the risks of addiction and overdose are clear. Thus, it is not difficult for nonsurgical, nonpharmacological interventions to out-perform opioids.
Despite this evidence, many non-cancer opioid prescriptions continue to be initiated for musculoskeletal MSK pain associated with injury, surgery, or degenerative diseases In contrast, there are many rehabilitation interventions for which there is evidence of effective pain reduction i.
Moreover, rehabilitation interventions are not addictive.
