Abstract:
Considerable evidence indicates that unrelieved pain is common and has a major social and economic impact. We have developed an innovative accelerated pain curriculum that brings together more than 800 pre-licensure students from six health science faculties. The goal is to enable students to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for evidence-based collaborative pain assessment and management. Large group and small group case-based learning strategies are used. Interprofessional student teams (8 -10/group) work with facilitators to develop a Comprehensive Care Plan for the case study; team-based discussions promote collaborative decision-making that is evidence-based. Faculty development workshops prepare more than 81 clinician-facilitators. Multiple methods are used to evaluate the student learning, curriculum process and relevance of content from students and facilitators. Outcome data have been very positive and indicate that students significantly improved their understanding of pain assessment and management and interprofessional collaboration. This model of a mandatory interfaculty pain curriculum for pre-licensure students is unique. The curriculum, with associated instructional tools and strategies for supporting this learning opportunity, utilizes an iterative design based on extensive evaluation. The curriculum has been implemented yearly since 2002 and will again be required curriculum for 2008 students.
