1. Communication with the family
    Focus on setting pain goals, discussing fears of addiction and hastening death, and also address potential adverse effects.

  2. Getting help in a timely manager

    When getting pain medication to a patient in need, it is more than offering physical comfort; it can also be about easing anxiety. For the best pain management, work to cut delivery times from days, to an hour or two.

  3. Treat patients with respect

    Listen to the patient’s wishes for their pain management and have a pharmacy partner that can aid to accommodate what they are asking for.

  4. Train the family to care for the patient

    Have tools on-hand to help educate the family and teach them what to expect if pain increases, what to do in case of an overdose, and also teach them about the different types of pain.
