Chronic Post-Surgical Pain
The continuing professional development courses (CPD) provide an opportunity for you to study a group of articles (defined as videos, text, podcasts and/or voice over powerpoint presentations) around a pain theme. Once you have viewed the articles, you can answer a range of multiple choice questions (MCQs) and obtain certification for studying which will be a valuable contribution to your professional portfolio. Each article within the CPD course will list the author, his or her background and a brief description of the content and/or learning outcomes.
The ‘Chronic Post-Surgical Pain’ course describes reasons why people get post surgical chronic pain and the problems in defining what it actually means. The course includes presentations on amputation pain as an example of post surgical chronic pain. This course is at novice and intermediate knowledge levels. Once you have completed your MCQs, you can save and print your certificate.
