Palliative Care ECHO Project Session: Using Pain Pumps in the Home
Pain is a common clinical problem in palliative care. The use of pain pumps (small, computerized devices administered subcutaneously) has several advantages for pain control. Some of these advantages include ensuring a steady infusion of medication(s) with reliable absorption if inserted in unaffected tissue and allowing combinations of drugs to be administered parenterally in a manner that is more convenient than repeated and painful injections.

This session will provide community providers including nurses, physicians, personal support workers, and other care providers with information on:
- What is pain and what is a pain pump
- Different product types
- When pain pumps are used and the advantages and disadvantages
- Typical opioids used with a pain pump
- Prescribing a pain pump
- Titrating pain pump dosing
- Administering, and general care of, a pain pump
- Troubleshooting a pain pump
- Conversations around the pain pump
- Supplies required with a pain pump
- Interdisciplinary approach (including what is in scope vs. not in scope for nurses and personal support workers)
