Title: Can scenario-tailored opioid education improve parental risk understanding, shift risk avoidance preferences and improve decision-making?
Abstract: This talk will summarize findings from our recent work demonstrating how parents’ risk knowledge & perceptions together with their pain relief preferences affect their decisions to give or withhold opioids. I will describe our novel educational intervention that may be able to enhance specific risk perceptions, shift preferences toward risk aversion, and improve the safety of opioid decision-making.
