In a continuing quest to be a one-stop shop to pharmacy professionals and students, Pharmacy Times® has upped its game on the podcast front in 2021 and will continue to introduce more podcasts in 2022.

Pharmacy Times® offers podcasts: Pharmacy Focus, Women in Pharmacy, Move the Needle Monday, Pharmacy Tech Talk, Psychedelic Pharmacy, Independent Rx Forum, and for students, Study Break. In , we plan to introduce Forensic Pharmacy, OTC Product Show, and Public Health Matters.

The rich array of podcasts is, of course, in addition to our many other offerings, including videos, webcasts, and conference coverage.

In this print issue of Pharmacy Times®, we look at pain management, including in our cover feature, “Monitor Patients for Opioid-Induced Adverse Drug Events,” in which Kathleen Kenny, PharmD, RPh, discusses using the lowest effective dosages to prevent constipation, sedation, and respiratory depression. Other related articles cover back pain, migraines, and OTC analgesics.

Elsewhere in the issue, we offer coverage of avoiding infusion pump errors, JAK inhibitors as treatment options for atopic dermatitis, and off-patent generic drugs.

Meanwhile, Editor in Chief Troy Trygstad, PharmD, PhD, MBA, discusses Walgreens doubling down on care-team integration in his Editor’s Note, noting that the role of the pharmacy chain in health systems, primary care, and specialty remains uncertain.

Looking ahead to the December issue, check out our cough and cold issue as winter approaches. Coverage of cough and cold as well as influenza can also be found on PharmacyTimes.com.

As we approach the end of the year, we wish pharmacy professionals and pharmacy students a happy and safe holiday season. We hope that pharmacists and other pharmacy staff members get a well-deserved break after working so hard in 2021.

And we once again salute pharmacists and pharmacy technicians for all they have done during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep communities and patients safe.
