What are the treatment options for managing pain in a patient with opioid use disorder who is hospitalized?

Patients with opioid use disorder who are hospitalized must have pain managed closely, otherwise this could lead to complications and emotional distress. Carrying a diagnosis of opioid use disorder and chronic pain inside a hospital, where the treatment team may not be as familiar with the case can lead to inappropriate prescribing practices or inadequate recognition of pain management needs.
