Pain is a complex biological and psychosocial experience which requires a multi-disciplinary management approach to treatment. Although effective pain management interventions and programs exist, provision of these services is inconsistent. This Pain Management Program includes a series of presentations focusing on providing the pharmacist with the knowledge base needed to participate in the pain relief effort. This presentation addresses the definition and epidemiology of pain.
Pain Management Part One: Definitions and Epidemiology is a PHARMACIST continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activity. This course is the home-study recording of an application activity, originally presented by live webinar on March 15, 2017, for health-system pharmacists.

Participants must view the entire presentation, successfully complete the learning assessment with a minimum score of 80%, and complete the course evaluation prior to claiming credit and receiving 1 contact hour or 0.1 CEU of continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit. To claim CPE credit, participants must have their NABP e-profile ID, birth month, and birth day. Continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit will be reported directly to CPE Monitor.
SPECIAL NOTE: Learners have only 60 days from the date of completion to claim CPE credit.

The topic designator for this activity is 01 and qualifies for Disease State Management/Drug Therapy CPE. The initial release date was 03/15/2017 and the planned expiration date is 03/15/2020.
No organization other than Comprehensive Pharmacy Services (CPS) has provided financial support for any component of this continuing pharmacy education activity.
In accordance with the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education's Guidelines for Standards for Commercial Support, CPS requires that all individuals involved in the development and delivery of program activity content disclose their relevant financial relationships. A person has a relevant financial relationship if the individual or his or her spouse/partner has a financial relationship (e.g., employee, consultant, research grant recipient, speakers bureau, or stockholder) in any amount occurring in the last 12 months with a commercial interest whose products or services may be discussed in the educational activity content over which the individual has control. The existence of these relationships is provided for the information of participants and should not be assumed to have an adverse impact on presentations.
All faculty, reviewers and planners for CPS education activities are qualified and selected by CPS and required to disclose any relevant financial relationships with commercial interests. CPS identifies and resolves conflicts of interest prior to an individual's participation in development of content for an educational activity.
