According to ACEP, there are 42,000 emergency medical doctors in the US who are all working towards a solution to the opioid crisis. There are also 180,000 emergency nurses in over 4,000 emergeny rooms. Additionally, family doctors and NPs, as well as perioperative nurses are responsible for administering and prescribing pain medications. The Tarascon Pain Pocketbook is an invaluable resource for prescribers who manage patients' pain and pain management. This pocketbook will help find that right balance and help prescribers move away from opioids through the CERTA concept, of which the ultimate goal is to arm emergency department providers with a variety of analgesic modalities and to promote patient-specific, pain syndrome targeted analgesia.
