Childbirth, whether vaginal or via cesarean section, can come with significant pain that requires effective management to ensure patient well-being and recovery. The way we address postpartum pain and the strategies we use, particularly regarding opioid prescriptions, have substantial implications for both immediate and long-term health outcomes. This webinar is designed to guide healthcare providers through the latest evidence-based clinical practice guideline for pain management after childbirth, which promote excellent pain control, reduce harmful opioid prescribing and more equitable, patient-centered care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify risks of opioid prescribing after vaginal and cesarean birth and associated procedures.
  • Utilize evidence base for opioid-sparing pain management after surgery during pregnancy and after childbirth.
  • Describe new national guideline for patient-centered, evidence-based management of pain during and after pregnancy.
