Changing the pain treatment paradigm with NSAIDs post-codeine rescheduling @ PSA SA Office
Feb 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

With the up-scheduling of codeine to prescription-only, pharmacists must re-think approaches to pain management. The utility of NSAIDs in the pain managing paradigm is well-established, with a range of NSAIDs available over-the-counter, each with varying safety profiles, efficacy and appropriateness based on the patient’s characteristics and current disease states.

This session will explore the range of NSAIDs available over-the-counter, including ibuprofen, diclofenac and naproxen, and where these fit in the management of a range of pain types.

Learning objectives

  1. Describe the various factors that contribute to pain, including lifestyle circumstances such as obesity and ageing
  2. List the types of pain in which NSAIDs may be appropriate
  3. Compare a range of NSAIDs and NSAID-combination products  based on efficacy, duration of action, safety profile and adverse effects, COX-selectivity and indications
  4. Summarise the efficacy of NSAIDs compared to codeine-based products
  5. Identify lifestyle modifications that may assist in pain management
  6. Demonstrate empathy and engagement with patients to provide patient-centred care and promote self-management and empowerment
  7. Outline referral pathways for pain management
