Caring for Caregivers: Reducing the Prevalence of Opioid Use by Caregivers When Treating Their Chronic Pain

Tuesday, April 4, 2023  |  1:00 p.m. CT (2:00 p.m. ET)

Proactively managing the risk associated with opioid use by caregiving employees has been a long-time focus for healthcare human resources and clinical leadership. Employee health benefit and wellness programs that proactively address the prevention of conditions associated with chronic pain and provide clinically appropriate conservative care options can materially impact the prevalence of physician prescribed opioid use in the caregiving population.


  1. Learn the employee wellness, regulatory and patient care risks associated with opioid use within the caregiving population.
  2. Understand the prevalence of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions and associated chronic pain within caregiving populations. Traditional MSK care protocols and the prevalence of opioid use in treating chronic pain.
  3. Hear about how broad-based research into digital care programs may reduce the probability and frequency of opioid use in the treatment of chronic MSK pain.
