PAIN MANAGEMENT POINT OF CARE
Jointly sponsored by University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy and Vemco MedEd
Supported by educational grant from Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., administered by
Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC.
Given the rapid changes in pain management, effective use of analgesics is
constantly evolving to include the latest research. Though the live symposium
provides an important foundation for understanding pain management
principles, learners will continue to have many questions regarding how
to incorporate tactics into clinical practice. Therefore, it is important to provide
learners with the skills and resources
necessary to search for answers to their specific questions. The Pain
Management Point of Care (POC) allows learners to search for answers
to their questions related to their own clinical practice.
