This is the final module needed to complete the Certification in Pain Management. It aims to integrate and consolidate the knowledge gained in the other five modules. Two case studies and a referral letter must be submitted and these tasks allow participants to make the bold leap of taking their new skills into the clinical setting. The interactive online format provides group support and feedback and deepens knowledge with weekly discussions of topical journal articles.
Prior to beginning the module participants are required to select from a list of books/ TED talks and films and write a reflection of their chosen readings. Working with patients in pain requires an enhanced understanding of what it is to be human and the aim of this section of module 6 is to allow each individual to deepen their own understanding of how they feel and respond to different life stories.
The list of readings is available under the Resources tab, you are encouraged to watch and read the material in preparation for Module 6 and even if you are just starting the journey of learning about pain.
