ABOUT THE COURSE

Chronic pain care is more than challenging. Patients aren’t satisfied with the care they receive. Clinicians aren’t satisfied with the tools they have to provide relief.

This self-directed course aims to present ideas for thinking about new approaches to patients with chronic pain, with the goal of finding alternatives or additions to treating with opioid analgesics.

To get the most out of these modules, try to complete the module in a single sitting (generally 20-40 minutes).

This course is jointly provided by Tufts University School of Medicine Office of Continuing Education and Center for Innovation in Family Medicine. It is made possible by a grant from Samueli Foundation.
