Share Article

Clinical experts David L. Caraway, MD, PhD, and Gladstone C. McDowell, II, MD discuss how to apply evidence-based, best practice criteria for appropriate patient selection for intrathecal pain management.

CME Outfitters, LLC (CMEO) announces the release of their latest certified webcast entitled Strategies for Success in Intrathecal Pain Management. This free, online activity is available through April 30, 2015 to physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals whose scope of practice includes providing care to patients with intractable pain. CME Outfitters, LLC designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Also available with this activity is a downloadable Q&A resource that lists faculty responses to audience questions from the live symposium.

Optimal pain management is a national health care priority, and the use of opioid therapy for patients with both acute and chronic pain is safer and more effective than ever before. However, for many patients with severe and intractable chronic pain, oral opioid therapy is not enough; other options are better suited to achieving pain control. Intrathecal (IT) therapy is an increasingly accepted strategy for delivering opioid and non-opioid analgesics for the management of intractable pain in appropriate patients. Evidence suggests that ongoing education is warranted to build and strengthen the use of evidence-based, best practices among clinicians regarding use of IT in pain management. This webcast helps clinicians first identify patients who are candidates for IT pain management, and then devise and modify the IT pain-treatment plan using strategies that balances efficacy and side effects and addresses common barriers to care.
