Pain Points: Nonopioid Pharmacologic Options in Older Adults

0.25 CME/MOC
0.35 AANP | 0.23 Pharmacology

Nonopioid therapy is an important tool for the treatment of chronic pain. But agents differ as to efficacy and safety in older patients. This program reviews the different classes of nonopioid medications, their efficacy in different types of pain, and their use in older patients. This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from the Opioid Analgesic REMS Program Companies. Please see https://ce.opioidanalgesicrems.com/RpcCEUI/rems/pdf/resources/List_of_RPC_Companies.pdf for a listing of REMS Program Companies.

Clinical practice guidelines from the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the United States Preventive Services Task Force recommend against routine Pap smears and bimanual exams in adolescents. This recommendation includes those planning on starting oral contraceptives or with possible sexually transmitted diseases. A recent study found nearly half of all such exams in this age group lack indications. While the evidence indicates a new direction, clinicians have been slow to change their practice. Join us as we discuss the reasons for these guidelines and review appropriate indications for these exams.

Adults between the ages of 18 through 64 with immunocompromising conditions due to either anatomic defects or impaired immune response are at the highest risk for invasive pneumococcal disease. They need two different pneumococcal vaccines: pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) at the time the risk factor is recognized and pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23) at least 8 weeks later. This podcast will discuss how to identify these patients at high risk for pneumococcal disease and implement guidelines for administration of pneumococcal vaccination in this population.
