Most osteopathic patients will be taking or have taken painkillers - less than half safely and appropriately. Most have unanswered questions about affects, side effects and safe usage.
This course will give delegates the opportunity to increase their knowledge and confidence of pharmacology and pain control medication. The course will discuss assessing and treating patients with poorly controlled pain, with advice and education on safe and effective pain control medication selection.
Using evidenced based practice, the course will also challenge common dysfunctional beliefs and attitudes to medications.
Course leader, Dave Baker is a qualified Non-medical Prescriber. He holds a post at City University, Department of Applied Biological, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences, where he lectures on MSc Modules including Medicines Management, Pain and Analgesia, and Non-Medical Prescribing.
What have previous delegates said about the course?
