There is no clear workflow or understanding of the use of MMA (multimodal analgesic) and it's role in orthopedic surgeries. Clinicians apply Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Protocol by utilizing multimodal pain management (MMA) approaches. Specifically  transition  from IV to oral  MMAs.  Providers will utilize the appropriate dose and medication.

Target Audience: Orthopedists

Learning Objectives: As a result of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify new Enhanced Recovery After Surgery protocols, orders and expected outcomes, and appropriately use MMA's for surgical patients.

  2. Utilize in-person or video conference interpreter to enhance patient communication

  3. Apply evidence based and consensus-based best practices for the diagnosis and managing of orthopedic conditions to maximize quality and minimize variation in practice.

Series Cultural and Linguistic Competency:

Patients who do not speak English may experience more pain and poor outcome peri-surgery. Language barriers makes it more difficult to assess pain and for patients to fully understand treatments plan to decrease pain.
