Pain management is at the forefront of every pharmacist’s mind, particularly given recent changes to codeine scheduling and the nature of patients in the clinical setting. This new two-day seminar provides an introduction to the complexities of pain management and the role of a pharmacist within the multidisciplinary team.  Incorporating didactic and case-based sessions, the seminar will cover analgesia pharmacology, acute pain assessment, medication delivery (including PCA’s and epidurals), chronic pain including the multidisciplinary approach to management, and opioid stewardship.
