Dear Friend,

Too often, treating patients with chronic pain turns into a frustrating process of patients asking for ever-increasing doses of opioid analgesics to control their pain, with physicians and other providers uncomfortable prescribing them.

When we as clinicians get into a tug-of-war with patients over pain control, the therapeutic relationship suffers.

I’m proud to share that the first of four modules on “Integrative Approaches to Chronic Pain Management,” is now offered as a self-directed online course. Thanks to a grant from the Samueli Foundation, the course is available at no cost, with CME credit.

The course is jointly provided by Tufts University School of Medicine and Center for Innovation in Family Medicine.

Beyond Analgesic Prescribing

When you take the course, you will learn how to find ways other than prescribing analgesics to help your patients get back in control of their lives.

Our goal is to expand the discussion about how pain affects all aspects of a patient’s life and begin to address these as well as the pain itself. The modules will help providers deliver a more whole person, integrative approach to pain.

This course is specially designed for clinicians who care for patients with chronic pain including physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and specialists. But anyone who interacts with chronic pain patients will benefit from the knowledge within. You will earn 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ by taking the course.

Please help me to share this resource widely to help our patients.

TAKE THE COURSE

If you are a patient, please let me know. This will help me send you more relevant content.

Be well.
Dr. Wayne Jonas
