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 ‘Health Policy’ course discusses Government policy and how it has or may impact on pain management within the UK. This course is at advanced knowledge level. Once you have completed your MCQs, you can save and print your certificate.
Below are listed all the articles that form part of this course. To make it easier to know where you have reached, you can click on the "Have I read this?" flags.
