With the recognition of the Opioid Overdose Epidemic, greater scrutiny is being paid to provider prescribing practices.  Trauma patients represent a unique population due to higher rates of substance abuse, multiple sources of acute pain, and the emergency nature of the care provided.  In this episode, Drs. Andrew Bernard and Douglas Oyler join moderators Drs. Dave Morris and Carrie Valdez to discuss strategies for opioid prescribing for trauma patients.
