The course content will also discuss the risks associated with misuse and alternate treatment methods.

Thyroidectomies involve meticulous dissection of a highly vascularized organ and complications may develop, such as hematoma, hypocalcemia, and even hypoparathyroidism. Because some of these complications may be fatal, the authors sought to identify the differences in postthyroidectomy outcomes when the use of a vessel sealant device (VSD) such as LigaSure or Harmonic scalpel is compared with more traditional techniques, such as ligatures and clips.

Opioid analgesic medications can bring substantial relief to patients suffering from pain. However, the inappropriate use, abuse, and diversion of prescription drugs in America, particularly prescription opioids, has increased dramatically in recent years and has been identified as a national public health epidemic, with West Virginia among the states with the largest opioid misuse and diversion problem.
