What Do You Do If Your Patient's Pain Medication Is No Longer Working?

Posted almost 3 years ago by Janette Perasso

If your patient is no longer tolerating their pain medication, how do you convert to another narcotic safely and seemlessly?  In this exclusive bootcamp, you'll learn not only when to use methadone (and how to use it properly) but also how convert patients from one narcotic to another, when necessary.

Join us for an Education Day with experts Forrest O. Beaty M.D. and Monica Wooldridge FNP:


You'll also receive 3 CE cerficates for completing this course!

FORREST O. BEATY M.D. has been a hospice medical director since 1992, giving him extensive experience in training other doctors how to prescribe a wide variety of pain medications for hospice patients.  

MONICA WOOLDRIDGE FNP is an expert Nurse Practitioner who is certified in hospice and palliative care as well as one of the approved educators for the HPNA. She is completing her Doctorate in Nursing Practice and currently serves as a clinical member of the coalition to transform advanced illness, on behalf of the American Holistic Nurses Association.
