The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Paralysis Resource Center (PRC) will be hosting a three-part webinar series focusing on pain medication education and resources.
On January 23, February 20, and March 13, the health series will offer an hour-long webinar with each session focusing on a specific question in regard to pain medication for those living with spinal cord injuries or another form of physical disability.
The first webinar will focus on the question: “What is my pain medication?” The topics covered in the session will be an introduction to a fundamental baseline of pain medications, understanding types of pain caused by living with paralysis, and the corresponding medications. There will also be a discussion on potential resources for staying updated about pain medications. Future sessions will cover opioids, opioid addiction, and opioid tapering options.
Hosting the session is Jay Gupta, RPh, MSc, MTM Specialist & C-IAYT. He is the Director of Pharmacy and Integrative Health at Harbor Homes in Nashua, NH, as well as an MTM consultant and Yoga Therapist. Jay also is the co-founder of RxRelax, LLC and YogaCaps, Inc.
All webinar sessions will be hosted from 12 pm-1pm EST and will be archived on the Reeve Foundation’s Youtube channel for viewing. Registry for the webinars can be found on the Reeve Foundation’s events page.
