Intrathecal Therapy for Severe Chronic Pain: From Evidence-Based Recommendations to Practical Demonstrations

Format: Webcast Series

Chronic pain affects 100 million Americans. Certain patients with chronic pain are candidates for intrathecal (IT) therapy, which can mitigate some of the risks associated with systemic opioids. Following appropriate patient selection based on medical and psychiatric history and a physical exam, a patient can begin a trial with morphine or ziconotide, the 2 US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)–approved IT therapies. Monitoring for adverse events should continue after IT pump implantation, as should monitoring for catheter- or pump-related complications. This CME-accredited Point of Care 201™ 2-part series discusses identification of candidates for IT therapy, available IT therapies, optimal treatment initiation and management, and both surgical implantation and pump refill techniques.

Combating Drug Resistant Gram-negative Infections: Giving Conventional Antibodies New Capabilities

Format: Webcast

Gram-negative (GN) bacterial infections present a daunting challenge for clinicians, as they can be especially hard to treat and are associated with high morbidity and mortality, particularly when dealing with carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and other antibiotic-resistant pathogens. While the development of novel antibiotic classes to overcome resistance has been lacking, recent advances in the development of next-generation agents as of well-established classes has the potential to help address the critical need for effective therapies for serious, drug-resistant GN infections. As such, it is crucial for members of the infectious disease clinical team who treat these patients to understand how these emerging therapies differ from their more conventional predecessors, how they may effectively fit into current treatment paradigms, and how to effectively approach dosing and therapeutic drug management in order to optimize health outcomes for these difficult-to-treat patients.
