Multi-modal Analgesia in the Fracture Patient: Non-Opioid Approaches to Maximizing Outcomes

The objective of this symposia is to discuss the current state of multi-modal analgesia in the fracture patient.  Traditional opioid-based pain management treatment modality has significant side effects that complicate recovery and rehabilitation.  The symposia will address the unmet needs of peri-operative pain management in orthopaedic trauma, provide new clinical data to educate orthopaedic trauma surgeons and other healthcare practitioners on multimodal approaches to potentially improve patient outcomes and satisfaction.  Clinical cases will also be discussed and provide a forum for discussion to optimize patient care. 

This is being supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, Inc
