FORDESPHARMACY believes in the value of a multi-diciplinary approach to pain management. We offer courses on Medications in Pain Management for allied health professionals. The course is designed for health professionals who are interested in understanding how medications are used in the management of pain. The course provides an introduction into the clinical pharmacology of pain medications, adverse drug effects, common medications used and how medications may effect other courses of treatment.
Our courses are written and presented by a Pharmacist and Physiotherapist. Individually, these two professions approach the management of pain in very different ways however understanding the role of other healthcare providers can be an invaluable tool for working together. And when it comes to pain, a multi-disciplinary approach often offers the greatest results to our patients.
