Very Helpful PAIN Website

  1. please let me take a moment to share my new favorite pain website.

    www.painedu.org

    this site contains a wealth of information that will be helpful for anyone who treats pain.

    the website includes:
    free cme credits for rns/np's/physicians
    case studies
    medication information
    a sample opioid prescription contract.
    a soap for screening to opioid abuse (i use it in my practice, all patients receiving opioids take it).
    a free handbook which details almost all of the pain medications, their usage and different therapeutic techniques. you can download it free, or they will mail you up to five copies free of charge! (ask me how much i love that?!)

    there is probably more to the site, but this is what i've found thus far. i have shared the link with several of our members and they have all found it to be very helpful.

    hopefully you will all enjoy the site as much as i do!

    Dave - would it be helpful if we split the "welcome to the pain management forum" thread in two and made a new website thread that we can "sticky" to the top of the forum??? We can then add this one to it (If I am as clever as I think I am I can merge it without you having to rewrite the post).

    That would be great Gwenith.

    I've been lost on how to do a sticky.

    Only Mods and admins can play with the thread tools that split, merge, copy, sticky and even edit the titles. I know Karen has been super busy so I thought I would offer. Have a think about what you would like inlcuded and drop them in on this thread - even if it is just the url to another thread/post I can play with it. The only thing is that I might have to move some of the threads to the test forum while I do this.

    Thanks Gwenith. I wondered why I couldn't find the right button.

    I'll get some stuff together and we'll see if we can't get a sticky going!

    Thanks for your help!

    Dave---what can you find about premies and pain? The current tool in use is "PIPP", which is very difficult to use, but at least includes gestational age in the scale. Is there anything else out in the literature? Thanks.
