Working with a Pharmacist on Continuing Education-Consultation 16

Working with a Pharmacist on Continuing Education 
 
I am using this example not to tell you to work with a pharmacist necessarily but to show you that opportunities are opportunities and never look at one as a bad change to get to know people.  One of the doctors in the program in Washington State had reached out and met with a pharmacist but he realized that the pharmacist has a birds eye view of who are the big pain management offices and we know from experience that many of these practices are under more and pressure to find adjuncts and alternative to narcotic medication.  So in the first place the pharmacist is a good friend to have and secondly there is no reason why the pharmacist can co-present with this DC in CE to area primary care and pain management medical doctors.  I would also work hard to get the pharmacist to invite me into some of the offices that he knows…Make a friend and get introduced to their friends, often the MD that does it for you is one that was not on your radar in the beginning.  The pharmacist is also your encyclopedia on medication and what you will learn will be invaluable when you talk to and teach the MDs about conservative management of spine disorders…ask questions and let them teach you.
