Pain management series

The following interprofessional pain education modules are outcomes from the Education and Practice Collaboration to Reduce Pain and Suffering project. These case-based training modules are focused on key issues in clinical pain management and are appropriate for all health providers. The web-based learning modules each include a facilitator guide to support individual or group learning sessions. This project was supported by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation.
