The aim this online interprofessional graduate-level credit program is to provide advanced education in collaborative pain management for healthcare professionals. This Certificate provides an opportunity for practising clinicians to learn with- from- and about each other to address the multi-dimensional nature of both acute and chronic pain, with an emphasis on complex/chronic pain. Registrants completing the program will:
-adapt and use an interprofessional approach to pain management through an understanding of the unique and shared roles and responsibilities of various professionals
-use critical thinking and evidence-based approaches to develop assessment and comprehensive management plans.
-use a bio-psycho-social clinical reasoning framework which integrates information across models in the assessment and management of pain.
Each course incorporates adult and IPE learning strategies, and uses the latest in online learning technologies. The course director is Dr. Judith Hunter, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta and University of Toronto, and the recipient of the 2013 award for Excellence in Interprofessional Pain Education from the Canadian Pain Society. Course contributors include leaders in pain research, management, and education from across Canada and beyond.
Courses can be used towards credentialing through Canadian Academy of Pain Management (CAPM). Upon completion of the program participants are issued a parchment through the UofA Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research and the graduate level credit earned will appear on your UofA transcript you also can use the letters PgCPain (post graduate certificate in pain) to designate program completion.
