SIUE School of Pharmacy Launches Collaborative Site for Pain, Palliative Care Pharmacy

The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Pharmacy has launched a new Web site:, designed to encourage thought sharing and learning among practitioners in pain and palliative care pharmacy.

Edwardsville, IL (PRWEB) October 1, 2009 -- The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Pharmacy has launched a new Web site:, designed to encourage thought sharing and learning among practitioners in pain and palliative care pharmacy.

The site is structured as a blog with comment sections enabled for ongoing discussion among those involved with and interested in health care, pain management, palliative care and related pharmacy topics.

The site was launched to coincide with the Strategic Planning Summit for the Advancement of Pain and Palliative Care Pharmacy, which will be held on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 1-2, at SIUE's School of Pharmacy.

Coordinator Chris Herndon, assistant professor of pharmacy at SIUE, said the site will foster education and discussion about the concepts of pain and palliative care education and how those concepts pertain to today's professional pharmacist. "We're encouraging online collaboration among pharmacists and have created the site as an open, collaborative space used to foster discussion among all health care providers," Herndon said.

"We believe hosting this space is an added benefit not only for our students, but for the entire health care community."

Herndon said recommendations that come out of the upcoming summit will lead to pharmacists putting what they have learned into practice. "I am urging health care practitioners and pharmacists to be as active as possible in disseminating recommendations by taking part in online discussion to be shared among colleagues."

The SIUE School of Pharmacy reached an important milestone earlier this year with its advancement to full accreditation status by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), the national agency for the accreditation of professional degree programs in pharmacy. The School has been called a national model for other new schools of pharmacy.
