P.A.C.T. Practical Approaches to Comprehensive Treatment of Pain curriculum focuses on improving clinicians’ ability to recognize, diagnose, and classify pain; educating clinicians on the full spectrum of pain management options, including non-opioid pharmacologic interventions; and providing risk reduction strategies through integration of opioids into individualized pain management plans. Presenting clinicians with a thorough review of the FDA’s “Opioid Analgesic REMS Education Blueprint for Health Care Providers Involved in the Treatment and Monitoring of Patients with Pain” will allow clinicians to provide evidence-based pain management to their patients on a daily basis. This curriculum will also provide tools to help clinicians mitigate issues associated with opioid therapies, recognizing the signs and symptoms of opioid dependence and abuse to best manage patients’ pain and medication use, and take steps to avert the opioid addiction crisis.
All learners who complete the course will receive an email from ‘Pri-Med Support’ with their certificate on completion of the course and credits.
