Join us as we sit down with Amy Baxter, a clinical associate professor of emergency medicine, to explore how societal factors, deceptive marketing, and profit-driven health care systems have contributed to the opioid epidemic. Amy will shed light on the effectiveness of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) and cost-effective non-pharmacological interventions for pain relief. Together, we’ll discuss barriers to adopting opioid-sparing strategies and how policymakers can prioritize solutions to reduce unnecessary post-operative opioid prescriptions.

Amy Baxter is a clinical associate professor of emergency medicine at Augusta University, federally funded for neuromodulation research to reduce needle pain, multimodal low back pain, and opioid reduction.

She discusses the KevinMD article, “How Enhanced Recovery After Surgery solves our opioid problems.”
