The pearls and pitfalls of each strategy will be discussed, along with alternative plans for pain control.

Individuals are living longer, which also increases the development of chronic diseases in these populations.  These chronic diseases require adequate management, which often includes pharmacotherapy.  This session will discuss the most recent guidelines for pharmacotherapeutic management in the geriatric population, with special considerations during episodes of acute illness.

The acute care provider is responsible for treating both community-acquired pneumonia along with healthcare-associated forms of pneumonia.  This session will review and analyze the most current guidelines regarding pneumonia treatment for the acute care provider.
