New CME Outfitters Activity Highlights the Role of Gender in Pain Perception, Treatment and Addiction
Date:3/1/2019

CME Outfitters (CMEO), a leading accredited provider of continuing medical education, is excited to announce a new CME Snack, The Role that Gender Plays in Pain Perception, Treatment, and Addiction, featuring expert faculty members Mark S. Gold, MD, and Ellen Ovson, MD, FASAM. This brief online activity is part of a CME Outfitters and USF Health nationwide educational initiative to promote appropriate treatment decision-making and addiction risk assessment in the management of acute and chronic pain. The project, Addressing the Opioid Epidemic: A Call to Action to Save Our Communities, is supported by an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson.

Studies have shown that gender plays an important role in pain, pain perception, and opioid use. Women are more likely to gain access to opioids through their medical treatment. Not only are women prescribed opioids more often than men (53% vs. 46%), this number increases with age. Often there is a lack of attention to underlying causes of opioid use disorder (OUD), particularly past sexual or emotional trauma, which can put women at a significantly higher risk for addiction and relapse. Gender-responsive treatment programs, such as the one led by Dr. Ovson at Lakeview Health in Jacksonville, FL help women address their substance use in an environment that removes stigma and bias.

It’s important to identify gender-specific needs when addressing pain management and OUD, with open discussion of being the key to their resolution. “We rarely think about what the person brings to the drug challenge. When it comes to someone who has experienced sexual trauma, a single dose of an opioid might be enough to make continued use more likely and addiction inevitable; a couple of doses, and they feel such relief and lack of tension that they think they’ve found the lock and key to their mental well-being and are more likely to rely on opioids to treat their psychological, rather than physical, trauma. Therefore, screening for prior substance use and trauma prior to prescribing opioids is essential,” stated ASAM McGovern Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Dr. Mark Gold, in a recent roundtable discussion on the subject.
