This year’s Pharmacotherapy (PHM) track will focus on the most current and relevant issues in pain management medications by discussing abuse-deterrent formulations, opioid tapering, pain and addiction, and the utility of using naltrexone and buprenorphine for medication-assisted therapy. An additional 10 courses will be made available in the On Demand portion that will cover geriatric pain management, kratom, drug-drug interactions, serotonin toxicity, opioid-induced constipation, and new approaches to managing pain associated with sickle cell disease.

A shout out to all pharmacists—you NEED to be at PAINWeek!

Year after year, I’m continually impressed with the commitment of pharmacists who have chosen to focus their careers on the care of individuals living with acute and chronic pain. To that end, PAINWeek (PW) continues to lead the way with a predominant focus on interprofessional education directed toward pharmacists by even benchmarking a track dedicated to practical and current practice issues important to us!
