Objectives:


1. Recognize patient perspectives on pain and opioid management
2. Identify practical approaches to limiting, reducing, or discontinuing opioids while maintaining a positive patient-physician relationship
3. Describe the role of shared decision-making in opioid tapering and discontinuation
