FREE MONTHLY WEBINAR SERIES –
Next Webinar: Friday 10th June at 11:00AM – 11:30AM AEST.
Webinar 4 registration closes COB Wednesday, June 8th
This series explores the role of pharmacists in claims/schemes, chronic disease management programs, interdisciplinary teams and the support role they can play for treating practitioners. Further various medications (eg opioids, anti-depressants) will be explored together with medicinal and non-medical options for common illnesses (eg pain, fatigue, and mental illness).
This Month: Webinar 4 – Medicines and fatigue
Many of the clients we see at Beyond Pain are experiencing fatigue and it is invariably assumed to be due to their medical condition(s). But did you know that some medicines can also directly cause or exacerbate fatigue? When multiple medicines are used, the risk of fatigue is increased. In this session, we will discuss medicines that can directly or indirectly cause fatigue.
We will also consider how the quality of life of our clients can be improved by optimising the use of these medicines. Can the dose be decreased to minimise fatigue? Is there a better medicine that can be substituted? Is it preferable to use non-pharmacological strategies when the risks and benefits are weighed up?
** We’re offering these free sessions to help the growth of those who work with us and those within the industries we service, so that as a whole, we can better support those in need.
