Improving Pain Treatment through Education
As a leading educational website, PainEDU was designed for healthcare providers to enhance understanding of pain management through interviews, articles, interactive tools and teaching resources. The site provides access to valuable resources and risk-management tools including the widely used Screener and Opioid Assessment for Patients with Pain (SOAPP®) and the Current Opioid Misuse Measure (COMM®)*.
PainEDU is also an instrumental part of PainCAS™, a pain and opioid risk assessment tool.
*The SOAPP and the COMM are validated tools that assess the likelihood of problematic opioid-related behaviors.
