drdoomprefer “patients with hx of substance abuse” over more conveniently typed but less redemptive “drug addict”+32019-06-27T22:42:48Z
sugaplumI don't see why switching her to oral pain meds when she is ready would be incorrect. Clearly she is worried about being on the pain meds, I feel making a proclamation that she has a low risk of addiction would be profiling just because she doesn't have a history.
The opioid epidemic also affects people who didn't have a previous history of drug abuse. Just a thought, not trying to push any buttons. Maybe I am thinking to hard about this, but I don't see the clear A vs B line for this question. +62019-07-15T21:22:02Z
nbme4unme@sugaplum I thought the exact same thing as you and chose the acetaminophen answer accordingly. I maintain that I am correct, my score be damned!+22019-07-29T19:25:58Z
sushizukaI had a similar question on UW and the explanation stated that the correct answer choice was the only one that addressed the patient's concern and answered her question. The rest were just alternative treatments, so they were incorrect.
But I too answered with oral pain meds. +2019-08-02T01:14:17Z
angelaq11couldn't agree more with you all. I chose acetaminophen because opioid abuse is NO joke. The crisis is still going strong because of answers like this...+2019-08-21T23:41:43Z
