Poster Presentation
Members of Ameritox’s Medical Affair’s team will present a new study at this year’s APS Annual Meeting.

Title: Patterns of Drug Use in the Older Chronic Pain Population
Summary: People fifty years of age and older are the fastest growing sector of the population and also the largest group of chronic pain patients. Many of these patients are prescribed chronic opioid therapy to manage their pain and it is essential to closely monitor these individuals. In addition, it has been shown that it is difficult to predict which patients are adherent with their prescription regimen and which patients are not. The purpose of this study was to evaluate patterns of drug use in the older chronic pain population by examining urine drug monitoring results.

The poster is scheduled to be presented on Friday, May 18 from 8:45-10:15 am Hawaii time (2:45-4:15pm EST). For more information on this poster, stop by the Ameritox booth.

Dates: May 16-19, 2012
Location: Honolulu, HI
