Updates in Pain Management

The complexity of pain management, which often includes the cause of pain, in addition to the patient’s age, gender, and other factors requires the advanced practice nurse to consider the best options when selecting the right medications. This multifactorial process must account for all of these aspects to determine the best plan of action for managing pain.

With a focus on recent research of how medication affects certain patient populations, this presentation discusses:

  • How to safely prescribe medications, including rules for controlled substances and Risk Evaluation Mitigation strategies
  • Strategies for handling drug tolerance and addiction
  • Classification and utilization of drugs for pain management, including pure and partial agonist opiates, NSAIDS, and adjunctive agents, to achieve “balanced analgesia”
