PainManagment, What works!

Course Description

After years of neglect, issues of pain assessment and management have captured the attention of both health care professionals and the public. Factors that prompted such attention include the high prevalence of pain, continuing evidence that pain is undertreated, and a growing awareness of the adverse consequences of inadequately managed pain.

Learning Objectives

1. Describe the current status of pain management in the United States, barriers to appropriate assessment and management of pain, and consequences of undertreatment of pain.
2. Explain the pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in pain perception.
3. Name elements of the pain assessment process, a tool used for pain assessment, and strategies for overcoming barriers to pain assessment.
4. List the types of pharmacotherapies used to manage pain and compare the mechanisms of action, uses, dosage forms, routes of administration, dosages, and side effects of the various options.
5. Discuss the role of nonpharmacologic interventions in treating pain and name a clinical use for a nonpharmacologic treatment.
