CPM1: Integrative Approaches to Chronic Pain Management: Introduction (CPM1)

Chronic pain. Patients aren't satisfied with the care they receive. Clinicians aren't satisfied with the tools they have to provide relief. This self-directed course aims to present ideas for thinking about new approaches to patients with chronic pain, with the goal of finding alternatives or additions to treating with opioid analgesics.
