Utilizing opioid therapy for the management of chronic pain must involve careful patient selection and evaluation of risk versus benefit including the risks of misuse, abuse, diversion, overdose and substance use disorders.  Chronic opioid therapy should also be accompanied by an ongoing, multifaceted monitoring plan.  Through discussion of current literature and case study application, this program outlines the necessary steps to evaluate risk, stratify patients, and create a monitoring plan based on individual risk level.  Relevant tools and resources are provided for practical application and creation of risk management plans in clinical practice.
