There has been a growing number of PGY2 Pain Management/Palliative Care residency programs to address the gap of specialists in this specialty area. These programs also have a limited number of pharmacist preceptors given the insufficient number of overall pharmacy specialists in this field. A national web-based journal club led by PGY2 Pain Management/Palliative Care residents would help with continuing education in this specialty for pharmacist preceptors, pharmacy learners, and non-precepting pharmacist practitioners in pain management and palliative care. Journal clubs have been shown to be an effective teaching strategy within the clinical setting and to have numerous benefits for healthcare professionals and healthcare learners.1 Benefits include staying abreast of current literature, improved skills in critically appraising research, and increased incorporation of evidence-based practices to patient care practices.1,2 National and regional web-based journal clubs have been implemented for PGY2 critical care and PGY2 cardiology residents and their mentors. These web-based journal clubs have been shown to provide unique benefits to their participants beyond what traditional journal clubs typically offer. Web-based journal clubs led by PGY2 residents and their mentors have been shown to improve resident presentation, literature assessment, and clinical practice skills with decreased preceptor burden.3,4 A 2018 study showed that residents felt that web-based journal clubs also provided them with valuable networking experience, increased awareness of professional involvement opportunities, and greater confidence in developing evidence-based recommendations. In the same study, 26% of mentors reported that the journal clubs influenced patient care decisions in their practice sites. Most mentors also reported that the web-based journal club improved their capabilities in providing written and verbal feedback on presentation style and content.4 Overall, a web-based journal club led by PGY2 residents will help preceptors, residents, and other learners stay current on peer-reviewed literature as well as gain numerous other professional benefits as part of continued professional development. 
 
This journal club will cover a timely new topic (benzodiazepine-induced immunosuppression), provide continued emphasis on important topics in the specialty area (deprescribing/re-evaluation for potentially unnecessary medications), and allow opportunities to further grow relevant clinical skills (literature appraisal, guideline writing, and critical thinking about medication MoA and ADRs) to facilitate continued professional development with the area of pain management and palliative care.

Objectives

  • Evaluate the literature demonstrating BZD-induced immunosuppression in patients
  • Critique different proposed mechanisms of action for BZD-induced immunosuppression in humans
  • Identify other pharmacological classes commonly used in palliative care patients that may have unintended immunosuppressive adverse effects
  • Develop strategies to facilitate deprescribing of medications with unintended immunosuppressive adverse effects

Very few studies evaluating impact of duloxetine in perioperative pain management – none I could identify in comparison to a commonly utilized drug
 
Overall educational goal is to describe utility of duloxetine in perioperative pain management and any associated pros/cons vs a standard treatment such as pregabalin 
 
 

Objectives

  • Differentiate between mechanisms of action for duloxetine and pregabalin in pain
  • Discuss strengths and weaknesses of this trial
  • Describe the impact of duloxetine and pregabalin on pain and cognitive function in this trial
