Pharmacology in Pain Management Workshop


Date: Sunday 7 April 2019
Time: 1.30pm - 5.00pm


The Challenges and Opportunities of Pain Management in the Clinical Setting

The intended audience includes GPs, Pharmacists, Specialists and other Allied Hhealth professionals with interest in pharmacology and its application in persistent pain within the clinical setting.

This will be an interactive workshop that will address the challenges and opportunities that are faced in the clinical setting. The workshop will focus on pain management in those suffering psychiatric disorders and the combination of psychotropics and analgesics. It will also address the safety and efficacy of opioids from hospital to beyond discharge, to the patient at home. There will be the opportunity to explore the risks associated with undertreatment, and the pervasiveness of opioid use and related dose-dependent risks and a fascinating look at how placebo is used in pain management and its application in clinical practice. The workshop will include a case study for practical application of principles that will be addressed by the various multidisciplinary expert speakers. There will be opportunities for questions and networking with peers, so that current evidence-based science can be optimised in everyday practice.
