The theme this year is “Time to Remember, Time to Act.” And, the Florida Association of Nurse Anesthetists (FANA), representing more than 5,400 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs), has been doing its part to continue to educate and empower patients about non-opioid alternatives available to them during the course of their anesthesia and medical treatment.
Florida is one of only a handful of states in the country that has adopted a non-opioid alternatives law, which gives patients the right to request that no opioids are administered without a conversation occurring with their health care providers.
Patients should be empowered to make medical decisions during the course of their treatment based on the facts and their preferences. The current non-opioid alternatives law provides patients and health care providers with the tool they need to make informed decisions about the treatment options.
