Challenges identified among healthcare providers, including pharmacists, are professional knowledge gaps on effective treatment for pain and practicing in professional silos when managing patients who suffer from pain. Collaboration among healthcare providers, interprofessional continuing education, and improved patient communication and empowerment are needed to manage pain appropriately. Furthermore, pharmacists have a meaningful and growing opportunity to ensure patients are managed appropriately in many states—balancing pain management and potential abuse—as they will always encounter those with pain, whether or not it is the patient’s primary issue.
