Session Overview:

Opioids are a mainstay of pain management in hospice and palliative care but determining how to safely use opioids in patients with opioid use disorder can pose challenges for the hospice and palliative care team. This session will review the use of buprenorphine and methadone for concomitant treatment of opioid use disorder and pain at end of life. Participants will also be presented with at least four barriers to effective pain management in patients with OUD and a contrast of various patient scenarios for pain management with OUD.
