Treat Your Patients' Pain Effectively
Date:5/15/2008

MONTVALE, N.J., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Pain is a chief reason that patients seek medical attention; opioid analgesics are an important option for these patients. Physicians must be able to determine which opioid treatment will provide the best outcomes for their patients.

To make clinicians aware of the importance of choosing the proper opioid analgesic, the dual journals Current Clinical Practice and The Journal of Family Practice: Special Edition Current Clinical Practice have published an online-only supplement in May 2008 titled "Looking beyond the administered drug: Metabolites of opioid analgesics". The supplement, authored by Swati Nagar, PhD, and Robert B. Raffa, PhD, of the Temple University School of Pharmacy, discusses the importance of understanding the active metabolites of opioids, a major cause of adverse events and a key component of an opioid's efficacy and tolerability.

"Looking beyond the administered drug: Metabolites of opioid analgesics" is available on The Journal of Family Practice Website, http://www.jfponline.com/supplements.asp?id=6213 , and on CurrentClinicalPractice.com .

The Journal of Family Practice: Special Edition Current Clinical Practice, an indexed and peer-reviewed journal distributed to 96,000 family physicians, and Current Clinical Practice, distributed to 63,000 doctors of internal medicine, have published this supplement, which was developed by Health Science Communications with support from PRICARA(R), Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Nurse practitioners and physician assistants can find this supplement on http://www.APCToday.com , an online resource for advanced practice clinicians.

The Journal of Family Practice is published by Dowden Health Media, a Division of Lebhar-Friedman, Inc. APCTODAY is copyrighted by Dowden Health Media, a Division of Lebhar-Friedman, Inc.
