CME: Chronic Pain Management

Chronic Pain Management: New Interactive CME Activities on AJM Website

A new interactive continuing medical education (CME) activity with patient case videos has been posted on The American Journal of Medicine’s website: Comprehensive Chronic Pain Management: Improving Physical and Psychological Function.

Here is the CME program description:

Using a unique, highly interactive, video patient case teaching format, this activity is intended to provide clinicians who manage patients with chronic pain with new insights and expand their understanding to achieve the goals of effective pain management — reduction of pain, improvement in function, and restoration of psychological health– utilizing a multidisciplinary (pharmacological and nonpharmacological) approach. Participants will have multiple “interactive” opportunities to reinforce their own best practices or recognize potential gaps in their clinical practice and will receive information to help them accurately assess the severity of pain, evaluate biopsychosocial factors that impact treatment, and develop strategies to meet the goals of therapy and improve patient outcomes.

This CME activity was originally presented on Saturday, March 26, 2011, in National Harbor, Maryland, and was adapted for release on July 21, 2011. Content was developed by faculty. The symposium was supported by an educational grant from PriCara, Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., administered by Ortho-McNeil Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC.

The symposium was an official independent satellite symposium held in conjunction with the American Academy of Pain Medicine’s 27th Annual Meeting.
