Statement of Need

While team-based care is the best approach to managing patients with pain, it is not always easy, with lack of communication and education often being the biggest concerns. It is important for the entire healthcare team to work together to improve communication and to better educate patients about their pain management. Here, we examine the role of pharmacists in educating patients about their pain to optimize safe and effective treatment plans.

In this CMEOCast podcast about team-based strategies that address patients' pain needs, expert faculty discuss the management of pain from acute injury, dental procedures, and minor surgery as well as that of patients with chronic pain, including strategies that promote improved communication among the treatment team and educating patients about their pain.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Develop strategies to promote improved communication with the entire pain management team.
  • Educate patients about their pain to optimize safe and effective multimodal treatment plans.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson.
