Pain management and counselling: how can pharmacists support patients in achieving better quality of life
Millions of people across the globe live with pain on a daily basis, including from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, other forms of musculoskeletal pain and other types of pain. Pharmacists are uniquely positioned to support patients in achieving appropriate pain management and control, by providing advice on pharmacological, non-pharmacological and behavioural measures. By enhancing their knowledge, pharmacists can meaningfully contribute to the interdisciplinary care of pain patients. This event will explore evidence-based approaches that pharmacists can recommend for improving the quality of life of those living with pain.
