Pain Management Training

Mi-CCSI is offering training program on pain management

As part of our collaborative mission, Mi-CCSI has been developing a comprehensive training program to address patients with acute and chronic pain. We have assembled an experienced faculty and with the input of our member and community organizations, we have developed a curriculum over the past seven months. We are offering an inaugural training session that will address the basics of pain management mechanisms, pathophysiology, biopsychosocial aspects and pharmacotherapy. It is our intent to extensively gather feedback to inform future phase 2 training that will focus on key skills and tools that be used to assist primary teams in managing patients with acute and chronic pain.
