UKCPA - Pain Community


The UKCPA Pain Community is committed to raising the profile of clinical pharmacists in treating and managing pain.

Pain is an area which crosses all specialities and sectors within pharmacy.

The UKCPA Pain Committee aims to improve the understanding of the core principles of managing pain in all areas of clinical practice as well as sharing their expertise on more specialist issues.

They have strong links with the British Pain Society and regularly provide their expertise to NICE guidelines and appraisals and at national conferences.
