A Timely and Must-Have Resource for Prescribers Who Manage Patients’ Pain
The Tarascon Pain Pocketbook is a must-have resource for physicians and medical professionals responsible for prescribing and administering pain medications, including emergency medical doctors, emergency nurses, family doctors, nurse practitioners, and perioperative nurses. Following the CERTA concept (Channels, Enzymes, Receptor Targeted Action) this pocketbook helps prescribers find the right balance of therapies and medications while working to reduce opiate use and promoting patient-specific, pain syndrome targeted analgesia. This targeted, patient-focused analgesic approach allows for a broader utilization of combinations of non-opioid analgesics and more refined and judicious use of opioids. The new Tarascon Pain Pocketbook is an invaluable resource for the hundreds of thousands of prescribers who manage patients’ pain.
