  • Interprofessional Pain Management Competency Program
    Pain is a complex health issue that has significant human and economic costs. There has been momentum to strengthen pain care across health professions; however, there is no agreement on the basic core competencies each clinician should possess to effectively manage pain. The Interprofessional Pain Management Competency Program sought to address this issue by identifying core competencies in pain management for prelicensure clinical education that can serve as a framework in the development of comprehensive and effective pain care management curricula. In an article published in the June issue of Pain Medicine, “Core Competencies for Pain Management: Results of an Interprofessional Consensus Summit,” University of California, Davis experts Drs. Scott Fishman and Heather M. Young, along with a team of international experts representing various health professions, identify the desired skills and knowledge new health professionals must possess to best care for people with pain. These educational outcomes, known as core competencies, serve as a framework for the development of comprehensive pain management curricula for early learners in the health professions.
