Virtual Seminar – December 5-6, 2020

December 5, 2020 to December 6, 2020

Course Format

2-day live virtual seminar (16 hours) that allows you to connect online, in real time, with healthcare providers across the globe. Interact with peers and facilitators through open mic Q&A sessions, group discussions, polls, and online chats. Practically apply your knowledge through case assessments and formula investigations. Leave the live event with a comprehensive manual containing references, charts, and tools that will assist with expanding your practice and optimizing therapeutic outcomes for you patients.

 

Course Description

Chronic pain is the primary reason patients seek healthcare, affecting more than 1.5 billion people worldwide, and, despite advances in pain research and knowledge, pain remains inadequately treated. Challenges in current pain management can be described by:

  1. Adverse systemic side effects, including GI ulcers, liver toxicity, CNS effects, and opioid use disorder
  2. Inadequate therapeutic efficacy (30-50% of individuals with chronic pain report pain is not adequately controlled)
  3. Poor patient compliance resulting from adverse side effects and inadequate therapeutic outcomes
  4. The need for greater understanding by the medical community on how to appropriately target pain pathways

The overarching objective of this program is to address the 4 major challenges described above:

  • Reduce systemic adverse events through topical and local analgesic applications
  • Optimize therapeutic outcomes by carefully targeting pain at its source, selecting appropriate analgesics based on pharmacodynamics, and applying appropriate combination therapy
  • Improve patient compliance by reducing adverse events, improving outcomes, and simplifying treatment regimens
  • Provide healthcare providers the tools to appropriately assess and classify pain, identify anatomical structures and pathways, and appropriately utilize analgesics based on pharmacodynamics, safety, and efficacy profiles – ultimately reducing adverse events, improving outcomes, and reducing opioid use

At this 2-day event, day 1 will be dedicated to laying the foundations for an alternative and improved approach to pain management by reviewing pain physiology (types of pain, pain pathways & neural systems, and sensitization), analgesic pharmacology of 40+ ingredients (pharmacodynamics, efficacy, safety, and dosing), and topical therapy applications (skin physiology, delivery systems, and formulation considerations). The skills and knowledge that is acquired from day 1 will be put to work on day 2 with patient case assessments and formula investigations for common pain or pain-related conditions, including osteoarthritis, low back pain, diabetic neuropathy, anal fissures, fibromyalgia, surgical pain, and opioid use disorder.

Intended audience

Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, physicians, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare providers looking to get into or are currently engaged in pain management.


Learning Objectives

Pharmacists

  1. Identify challenges in pain management including adverse systemic reactions, inadequate therapeutic outcomes, poor patient compliance, and the need for education in pain management.
  2. Classify different types of pain, notably nociceptive pain, neuropathic pain, functional pain, and mixed pain.
  3. Investigate the neural systems and sensitization processes involved at each level of the pain pathway, including the periphery, the dorsal horn, the ascending pathway, the brain, and the descending pathway.
  4. Evaluate and organize current evidence on analgesic pharmacology with special focus on pharmacodynamics, efficacy, safety, and dosing of over 40 analgesics.
  5. Utilize fundamental concepts of topical therapy, including skin anatomy (target layers), physiology (lipids, hydration, temperature, pH, metabolism, and microbiome), individual differences (age, ethnicity, and sensitivities), and formulation consideration (delivery systems, premade base concepts, penetration enhancers, among more).
  6. Apply skills and knowledge in the form of case assessments and formula investigations for common pain or pain-related conditions.

Pharmacy Technicians

  1. Identify challenges in pain management including adverse systemic reactions, inadequate therapeutic outcomes, poor patient compliance, and the need for education in pain management.
  2. Classify different types of pain, notably nociceptive pain, neuropathic pain, functional pain, and mixed pain.
  3. Investigate analgesic targets for pain management.
  4. Evaluate and organize current evidence on analgesic pharmacology with special focus on pharmacodynamics, efficacy, safety, and dosing of over 40 analgesics.
  5. Describe important variables for topical therapy application, including skin anatomy (target layers), physiology (lipids, hydration, temperature, pH, metabolism, and microbiome), individual differences (age, ethnicity, and sensitivities), and formulation consideration (delivery systems, premade base concepts, penetration enhancers, among more).
  6. Assess different case scenarios and critically evaluate formulation treatment options for different patients.
