Dr. Pawasauskas’ current focus in clinical work is on the development of pain management education strategies for interdisciplinary practice. In academics, she is presently implementing a system for electronic examinations in the college of pharmacy.

She maintains a clinical consultation service in pain management at Kent Hospital, where she also precepts pharmacy students on their general medicine (required) and pain management (elective) APPE rotations. She teaches an elective course in palliative care (PHP 460), which is offered every spring semester. In addition, she is coordinator for the P3 Integrated Core, Gastrointestinal and Endocrine Disorders. She is active in local state initiatives, such as the RI Coalition to Improve End of Life Care. She is also engaging in a community outreach program to decrease the abuse of prescription drugs among middle and high school students.
