Yvonne D'Arcy and Patricia Bruckenthal

Oxford American Pocket Notes

  • Demonstrates ways to developing a comprehensive treatment plan, including an algorithm for treating chronic pain with opioids, interpreting results of a urine screen, and enforcing the opioid treatment agreement and developing an exit strategy
  • Shows concrete ways for the nurse practitioner to determine if the pain warrants opioid prescription, including ways to use the brief Pain Impact Questionnaire (BPIQ)
  • Brief and compact, perfect for point-of-care reference
  • Uniquely targeted to nurse practitioners who often treat pain patients
