Surgical Collaborative of Wisconsin Educational Webinar

The Role of Surgeons in Addressing the Opioid Crisis

Friday, April 6, 1:30-3:30 PM

Register at


As health care providers, we are all aware of the severity of the opioid crisis. Surgeons and their practice teams can play a key role in addressing this problem. Surgeons have the second-highest opioid prescribing rate in the country; in addition, one out of every three prescriptions written by a surgeon is for an opioid. The first SCW educational webinar will offer insight into opportunities for surgeons to change opioid prescribing patterns, as well as new information on potential alternatives for pain management. Join your colleagues from across the state to learn and network.
