Managing Your Pain After Surgery

A video from the California Society of Anesthesiologists

ASRA has partnered with the California Society of Anesthesiologists to distribute their new video on safe opioid use. Please take advantage of this brief 3-minute animated video intended to educate patients and their caregivers about strategies to manage post-surgical pain and safely take opioids at home if they are prescribed. There are many non-medicinal pain management options and it is important that patients know how to properly store and dispose of opioids if they are prescribed.

We encourage adoption of this video in hospitals, clinics and surgery centers – helping to increase awareness about safe opioid use, as well as non-opioid medications, techniques, and resources available to the medical community and patients for optimal pain control.
