Educational Resources

For many years, Purdue has carried out the vision of our physician founders as a company that offers far more than pharmaceutical products.

A company that develops prescription analgesic medications accepts a responsibility to provide educational resources about appropriate use in appropriate patients. That’s why Purdue offers multiple programs to connect medical experts with healthcare professionals who treat patients with chronic pain—and with the pharmacists and nurses who advise these patients.
