Get On the No-Pain Train: Following the Tracks to More Effective Pain Management in Your Patients

This interactive session does an in-depth exploration of the pain pathway, mechanisms of pain, and pain drugs, with a focus on designing treatments for your patients/practice. We will discuss treatments for various types of pain, including acute, chronic, and maladaptive in both cats and dogs, with an emphasis on chronic maladaptive pain, as well as practical tools for pain identification and client education. You will leave with tools to develop effective analgesic protocols in your patients.

Objectives:

  • Understand the pain pathway and where drugs work, which will enhance more effective analgesic protocol development
  • Decipher the truths/myths about various pain treatments, with a focus on chronic pain
  • Implement practical pain-scoring tools for easier and more rapid recognition of patients' pain
  • Utilize client education tools to increase the number of painful patients brought to the practice for pain relief.
