Course Description

Pain causes extensive suffering, disability and expenditure of scarce healthcare resources. These online education modules focus on the challenge of pain management for healthcare professionals across the healthcare continuum. Regional and national pain specialists present evidence-based strategies for assessing and managing pain in acute, ambulatory and palliative care settings. Teaching methods include audio, video and downloadable handouts. Lectures were recorded in January 2018 at the 9th Annual Challenge of Pain Conference provided by Continuing Nursing Education at the University of Washington School of Nursing. 
 

Publish Date: March 31, 2018. This course will expire March 31, 2021.

Comments from Conference Attendees

"Best teachings on the subject of pain and pain management I’ve ever attended. I learned new information and really appreciated the practical interventions nurses can do at the bedside and in clinic."

"The lectures covered physiology/pathophysiology as well as new research and ways of thinking about pain. There was a lot of helpful information on how nurses can be involved in helping clients with pain self-management."

"I have more tools to utilize when educating and assessing my patients’ pain."
