PCSS-O clinical experts, led by Roger Chou, MD, FACP and Melissa B. Weimer, DO, MCR, who have extensive knowledge in treating chronic pain, have developed a comprehensive core curriculum (http://pcss-o.org/education-training/core-curriculum/) for primary care providers who want to have in-depth knowledge in treating chronic pain. The 14, one-hour modules that make up the curriculum give up-to-date and evidence-based information on best opioid prescribing practices.
This course provides clinicians with a solid base for treating chronic pain. The curriculum was created in an effort to consolidate the vast amount of information available to clinicians into a course that provides information, resources, and knowledge clinicians need to treat their patients who suffer from chronic pain, including non-pharmacological treatments. The result is the most comprehensive and up-to-date curriculum developed thus far for the treatment of chronic pain.
Participants will receive a certificate of completion following each completed module and a final certificate when all modules have been completed. Each module (except the Overview module) is designated for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
