Pain Management Curriculum
Did you know hydromorphone is five times more potent than morphine?
Clinical training on the safe and effective use of opioids has been largely absent from most medical and nursing education. CAPC's Pain Management curriculum offers 14 online courses to help clinicians learn how to safely and effectively manage pain for seriously ill patients. The courses teach through interactive Q+A case studies of typical pain patients with challenging needs.
All frontline clinicians need to learn key pain management skills. Members can take this Pain Management curriculum to receive CAPC Designation as well as free CMEs/CEUs. See how the curriculum maps with your state's specific requirements, for example in NY State.
