Attend a Medication Safety Seminar

“Pain in Older Adults and the End-of-Life: Opening Pandora’s Box” is the first seminar in a Medication Safety Seminar Series hosted by the Peter Lamy Center for Drug Therapy and Aging and the Palliative Care Collaborative at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy on Jan. 11 from 8 a.m. to noon.

In this seminar, participants will learn to:

  • Delineate methods of identifying and monitoring pain in older adults and patients near the end of life.
  • Determine strategies for developing appropriate pain management goals in older and end-of-life adults.
  • Diminish the risk of creating a medication misadventure while mitigating pain pharmacologically.
  • Propose nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic avenues for optimizing pain management in these populations.

For details and to register, visit the Pain in Older Adults and End of Life web page.
