3 hours- 3 Pain/Rx CEs

In today’s age of oxycodone addiction, have you considered the rat’s cage and conditions alongside the psychological and physiological addiction potential of the drugged water inside the rat’s cage? Who reading this summary has ever been prescribed oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam or other controlled substance for pain (back pain, wisdom tooth removal, post-surgery) and found themselves addicted? Or never could have become addicted?
Dr Fleetwood, pharmacist-turned-naturopathic physician will tell “the rest of the story” (in  true Paul Harvey style) in this 3hr Pharmacy CE on the top prescribed drugs for pain, their boxed warnings and other precautions, contraindications, nutrients wasted… AND, how to find the root cause of your patient’s suffering then safely, competently, and confidently de-prescribe their pain medications.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Differentiating between “pain” and “chronic pain” and the levels where either can exist
  2. Using the Therapeutic Order as a tool for hope and practical application in the office and patients’ lives
  3. Understanding “tips & tricks” of pharmacy (and homeopathy) to guide the deprescribing process
  4. Recognizing which pain medications can be abruptly discontinued and which ones must be s-l-o-w-l-y tapered. “Spoiler: almost ALL must be slowly tapered. You’ll learn how to do this safely, competently, and confidently.)
  5. Using the Medical History as an overlay to the patient’s particular story
