Patients with a serious or advanced illness more often than not require expert pharmacotherapy to gain symptom control. This fast-paced workshop will cover some of the most challenging pharmacotherapy scenarios that we face daily.

Participants will learn about evidence-based approaches to treat inoperable malignant bowel obstruction, management of painful wound and soft tissue pain, palliative sedation, antibiotic stewardship, speed dating with psych drugs, and a real crowd pleaser - everything you ever wanted to know about buprenorphine!

Buckle your seatbelts - this is going to be an action-based four hours!

Unable to attend on April 19? You can still register to access the recording of the program and collect the credit hours.
