Safe and Effective Pain
Control After Surgery Brochure
The Safe and effective Pain Control After Surgery brochure was designed to
help surgeons talk with their patients prior to surgery about appropriate pain
management options. The brochure includes a guide for patients to help them
decide when to take medications based on the types of activities they can
perform in the days following surgery.
Additionally, to help patients lower their risk of misuse and diversion of opioids, appropriate use of these medications for severe pain as well as storage and disposal techniques are discussed. The brochure also includes an insert that describes nonmedication therapies, commonly prescribed medications and their side effects, as well as a customizable and fillable form for patients to list their medications, doses, and times of administration following surgery.
