AAPM Virtual Roundtable Discussion: Multimodal Perioperative Pain Management in this Era of Opioid Crisis

Description

Multimodal pain therapy can result in additive or synergistic analgesic effects and minimize adverse drug effects, especially in the perioperative timeframe. The goal of this Virtual Roundtable Discussion is to support interaction among experts and health professionals.

In order to facilitate a meaningful dialogue, this Virtual Roundtable Discussion is limited to no more than 15 attendees.
