Governor Wolf Joins Pittsburgh Steelers Legend Franco Harris to Announce New Opioid Prescribing Guideline Recommendations for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

first_imgGovernor Wolf Joins Pittsburgh Steelers Legend Franco Harris to Announce New Opioid Prescribing Guideline Recommendations for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine March 16, 2017 Press Release,  Public Health,  Public Safety,  Results,  Substance Use Disorder Pittsburgh, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf and former Pittsburgh Steeler Franco Harris, joined state and local leaders at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Montefiore to announce new prescribing guideline recommendations for the safe and effective use of opioids in orthopedics and sports medicine.“These new guidelines are a crucial part of our battle against the opioid crisis in Pennsylvania,” said Governor Wolf. “By partnering with health care professionals in the fields of orthopedics and sports medicine to reduce the overprescribing of opioid painkillers, we are working to reduce opioid abuse in one of the highest-risk groups – people who seek medical care due to injuries.”At the event Harris discussed his experience and offered support of the governor’s mission to fighting the opioid epidemic.“Everyday we’re reminded we have a tough fight on our hands,” said Franco Harris. “But you should know that with the governor and this administration that there is no time and effort they will not give to fighting this epidemic.”Pennsylvania Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine and UPMC Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Patrick Smith also provided remarks about how the new guidelines will help reduce the over-prescription of opioids in Pennsylvania.The Safe Prescribing of Opioids in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine guidelines address the use of opioid pain medication in orthopedics and sports medicine. They are intended to help health care providers improve patient outcomes and to supplement, but not replace, the individual provider’s clinical judgment.Under Governor Wolf’s leadership, the departments of Health and Drug and Alcohol Programs have convened the Safe and Effective Prescribing Practices Task Force. Membership of the task force includes various state agencies, representatives from medical associations, provider advocates, and community members.The task force has now developed and adopted guidelines for nine medical specialties on the safe and effective use of opioids in the treatment of pain:Emergency Department Pain Treatment Guidelines: To appropriately relieve pain and attempt to identify those who maybe be abusing or addicted to opioid analgesics and refer them for special assistance.Opioid Use and Safe Prescribing for Geriatric Pain: To highlight special problems concerning using opioids when treating older adults for chronic non-cancer pain.Guidelines on the Use of Opioids to Treat Chronic Non-cancer Pain: To address the use of opioids for the treatment of chronic non-cancer pain. These guidelines do not address the use of opioids for acute pain, nor do they address the use of opioids for the treatment of pain at the end-of-life.Guidelines on the Use of Opioids in a Dental Practice: To address the use of opioids for the treatment of acute dental pain.Obstetrics and Gynecology Pain Treatment: To address the use of opioids for the treatment of pain in pregnant patients, during and immediately following delivery, and during breastfeeding.Opioid Dispensing Guidelines: To focus on several key areas that can impact pharmacists of any practice setting. Focal points include assessing the appropriateness of opioid pain medication at the point of dispensing, recognition of “red flags” on prescriptions as well as high risk medication combinations, available resources for those with a substance use disorder, and methods to prevent diversion from the emergency department.Guideline on Use of Addiction Treatment Medications in The Treatment of Pregnant Patients with Opioid Use Disorder: To address treatment for opioid use disorders during pregnancy and is intended to help health care providers improve patient outcomes when caring for these patients.Guidelines on Safe Prescribing of Benzodiazepines for Acute Treatment of Anxiety and Insomnia: To address the use of benzodiazepines for the treatment of anxiety and insomnia.The Safe Prescribing of Opioids in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine.If you or someone you know is suffering from the disease of addiction, call 1-800-662-HELP or visit www.pa.gov/opioids for treatment options.

10 Things You Should Never Buy Used.

first_imgby:  Reader’s Digest MagazineIn tough economic times everyone’s looking for bargains. But while it’s a great idea to buy used bookshelves, books, and CDs, there are some things that just shouldn’t be bought at thrift stores. Here are the top ten:Bike or motorcycle helmetsHelmets are meant to protect you from one accident. Sometimes damage isn’t visible, so buy a new helmet to make sure you’re getting all the protection you need.Child car seatsA car seat that has been in an accident may not protect your child in another. Damaged car seats are common; about one in ten have been in an accident, found one survey conducted in England. Brand-new car seats can cost as little as $50, and safety technology improves each year. Don’t risk your child’s life.TiresIf they’ve been in an accident, tires are likely to be unstable and unreliable.Wet suits and swimsuitsDon’t buy used any extremely personal products, especially if they hug your body. Also, constant changes in water pressure wear out wetsuits, making them more likely to tear.MattressesWith bed bugs infesting homes in record numbers, chances are the critters could lurk in any used mattress. You might also end up sleeping with other people’s mold, mites, bacteria, and bodily fluids (yuck!).CribsScores of crib recalls, as well as changing safety standards, make it hard to verify the safety of a used crib.LaptopsLaptops are more likely to be dropped, knocked around and spilled on, simply because they’re out in the world, while a desktop computer sits (mostly) safe at home.Plasma TVsIt’s hard to determine how well TVs, DVD players, and other electronic devices have been cared for by their previous owners. If your plasma screen dies, it can cost thousands of dollars to fix or replace—sometimes almost as much as it would cost to buy a new TV.ShoesUsed shoes have been molded to their previous owner’s feet. Poorly fitting shoes can cause pain and health problems over time.HatsHats are rarely cleaned before they are donated to thrift stores. They may contain remnants of hair products, sweat, or skin infections.Sources: msn.com, US News & World Report, bargaineering.com HealthLifestyle 10 Things You Should Never Buy Used. by: – May 25, 2011 33 Views   no discussions Share Tweetcenter_img Share Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Public Works situation worries PSU boss

first_imgLocalNews Public Works situation worries PSU boss by: – June 21, 2011 Share Share 17 Views   no discussions Tweetcenter_img Share Sharing is caring! General Secretary of the Dominica Public Service Union, Mr. Thomas Letang. Photo credit: facebookGeneral Secretary of the Dominica Public Service Union (DSPU) Thomas Letang says he is concerned about the future of the Public Works Department where a number of Dominicans are employed.PSU officials met with management of public works last week to discuss an ongoing financial crisis there which has resulted in the nonpayment of salaries for two consecutive fortnights.Though the company was able to pay some of its employees after meeting with the PSU last week it is still not known when the other workers will be paid.“If people who get contracts can be influenced to give some work to the Public Works that can help the situation. I expect that after the budget is presented, central government can engage public works to do some jobs. If the debt that is owed to Public Works is settled, that can help resolve the problems,” he said.Letang says if the situation there is not addressed now it could result in the collapse of the company.“The people are disappointed and depressed that they are not being paid…I think management, the union and policy makes should sit down and address the situation,” he said.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Luke Walton still deliberating who Lakers should start at power forward

first_imgNance finished with four points and seven rebounds in 21 minutes. If he was looking for a game to seal his job as the opening night starter, that probably wasn’t it. Meanwhile, Randle scored 15 points in 13 productive minutes. A third-year forward who is among the Lakers’ more explosive athletes, Nance has been quiet throughout the preseason. However, Walton appreciates the way he can move the ball within the offense, make plays defensively and balance out Lopez, who scored a team-high 16 points Friday.Nance called Lopez, acquired over the summer from Brooklyn, “a superstar center,” and said he has enjoyed learning to play alongside the 7-footer.“He is a super cerebral player, like I like to think of myself,” Nance said, “and defensively he talks great and I can learn from that.”From an offensive standpoint, there is logic to bringing Randle, an offensive creator off the bench, while Nance, a more reactive player, might benefit from playing with Lonzo Ball.“I just want to be on the court,” Nance said. “I just want to make a difference in the game. Whatever facet that may be, it is up to Luke.”Nance did not bristle when presented with Walton’s criticisms of his emotions. He recalled the moment his coach came to him on the bench, after he capped his frustrating run by missing two free throws.“He is saying instead of channeling that negatively by saying ‘Damn, I made some mistakes’ and putting my head down, instead, go make up for it. Get a steal, go chase down some blocked shots, go dunk on somebody.”Kuzma came out of nowhere to score 104 preseason points, the most in the NBA. After leading the Lakers in scoring in four of their first five games, Kuzma finished with eight points against the Clippers, shooting 1 for 8 from the field and missing all six of his 3-point attempts.The rookie drafted late in the first round out of Utah is probably the odd man out in the three-way race. With Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram on the court, the starting unit is already young and short on experience.“Whoever ends up being that position for us, with the young team that we have, we expect there to be some leadership out of that spot,” Walton said.

(Photo by Hans Gutknecht, Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — It sure seems like Luke Walton wants Larry Nance Jr. to win the starting power forward position.He paired Nance with Brook Lopez in each of the three exhibition games the center was on the floor, and has insisted that deciding who wins the Lakers’ last position battle is more nuanced than comparing the stats of Nance, Julius Randle and Kyle Kuzma.“It is more than who is playing better than the other two,” Walton said.In a 111-104 win over the Clippers on Friday that marked the end of the Lakers’ preseason slate, however, Nance played himself off the court by committing three turnovers in fewer than 90 seconds. The emotion Walton usually can count on from Nance was being channeled into frustration rather than buoyant energy.last_img read more
