Sep 10, 2015

PAINWeek provides relevant and meaningful education that impacts patient care in a positive way. Benzer Pharmacy, a chain of over 40 independent retail pharmacies, will be demonstrating its latest products and offer information on personalized pain management services.

“Benzer Pharmacy encourages all participants to take full advantage to build industry contacts, and learn what pain management services the pharmacy offers,” says Samantha Huettig, Benzer Pharmacy Event Coordinator. 

Pain is an unpleasant feeling that results from harmful stimuli such as blunt force, extreme temperatures, or dangerous chemicals. It can result from a variety of sources including nerve damage or trauma. Whatever the cause, the complexities of pain make treating it a challenge.

Pain management is essential because uncontrolled pain prevents a person from working productively, enjoying recreation, or taking pleasure in their usual roles in the family and society. Chronic pain may have a myriad of causes and perpetuating factors, and therefore can be more difficult to manage than acute pain. Chronic pain requires a multidisciplinary approach and customized treatment protocols to meet the specific needs of each patient. 

Benzer Pharmacy provides pain management compounded pain creams that allow physicians to choose from medications with different mechanisms of action to target the patient’s specific type of pain. Topical and transdermal creams and gels can be formulated to provide high local concentrations at the site of application. 

“Benzer Pharmacy compounding pharmacist can provide medication therapy in a strength or an easier to use form that is not commercially available,” explains Samantha. 

Using compounded pain creams also provides an alternative for patients who suffer from chronic pain and allows them to escape some of the stigmatization associated with the condition. 

“Benzer Pharmacy also offers specialized pharmacy care for patients diagnosed with chronic illnesses,” adds Samantha. 

Topics to be discussed at the conference will include: Why Does It Hurt to Get Older and What Can We Do About It?, Assessment of Pain in Older Adults, Pain and Depression in Older Adults, and Management of Pain and Maintaining Function in Older Adults. For more information visit:
