Pain medicine clinical skills courses

Our basic and advanced clinical skills courses are designed to support pain medicine trainees.

The basic clinical skills course focuses on your clinical skills development. Example topics include workplace-based progressive feedback forms, the importance of physical examination skills and an introduction to mental state examination. The course will also help you become more familiar with some of our features such as the library and Networks, our online learning and collaboration system.

The advanced clinical skills course provides training in a variety of skills, including communication and interviewing, case formulation and patient pain self-management.
