Opioid Pharmacogenetics and Considerations for Postoperative Pain Management (1.25 Class A CE with 1.25 Pharm)

Monday, September 24
4:15 PM - 5:30 PM
Location: Ballroom B, Hynes

There is significant variability in patients' response to post-operative pain medications. Studies have identified genetic loci that alter opioid receptors, transporters, and metabolism, which directly or indirectly affect their efficacy and adverse effects. CRNAs will be knowledgeable about the implementation of pharmacogenetic information in clinical decision making following this presentation.
