The Oregon Pain Management Commission’s (OPMC) has released a new web-based pain education module Changing the Conversation About Pain: Pain Care is Everyone’s Job. The Module and Pain Care Toolbox are now available from the OPMC’s website or at www.oregonpainmodule.org.

 

Pain science and pain treatment have changed significantly in the recent years and this module reflects that change. The module is designed to apply to all levels of healthcare professionals and will provide the tools to improve pain care, better manage the impact of pain and decrease risks associated with opioid use.

 

The new module, Changing the Conversation about Pain: Pain Care is Everyone’s Job was launched on January 30, 2018.  This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the Joint Providership of the Oregon Medical Association (OMA) and the Oregon Pain Management Commission (OPMC).  The OMA is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

 

In addition to meeting the Oregon requirement for completing the web-based training provided by the Oregon Pain Management Commission, clinicians who complete the module will now qualify for CME.  The Oregon Medical Association designated this educational module for a maximum of one (1)  AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
