via Canvas Network

This course may be unavailable.


Elements of Pain is a five-week self-directed course in pain medicine intended for medical professionals (general practitioners and family doctors) or anyone in the healthcare profession managing people in pain and looking to increase their knowledge and abilities in managing these patients. This course will provide an introduction and approach to the assessment of someone presenting with pain. To reduce pain and suffering, we must have an understanding and knowledge of pain and its processes. Our approach must be systematic and focused on the assessment of the person in pain, including taking a full and relevant history, which should be followed by a patient-orientated physical examination.
