Description

Pain and symptoms related to terminal or chronic illness continue to be undertreated today. A recent Institute of Medicine report suggests that approximately one-half of those surveyed over the age of 45 with pain experienced pain for more than one year. Other data additionally supports the need for improved pain care in the pain/palliative treatment and post-operative care settings. Even within hospice and palliative care settings, undertreated pain appears to still be of concern. Despite numerous advances in our understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of pain and terminal symptoms, we continue to see evidence of resource underuse, disparities in care, and unnecessary barriers created by health professionals. Pharmacists, in every setting, should be an integral part of the pain and palliative care team. This presentation will review historical and recent perspectives and recommendations, national quality measures, and key competency areas for the pharmacist.
