Essential Pain Management (EPM) Online launched

07 September 2021

EPM Online has been launched and is now live and free for anyone across the globe.

Recognising the challenges of delivering face-to-face education since the emergence of COVID-19, the developers of EPM have taken the traditional training course and created a fully online, interactive, do-at-your-own-pace EPM online course.

EPM Online has been developed in a partnership between ANZCA, Interplast Australia & New Zealand and Praxhub, with support from the following organisations:

EPM Online provides a primer in the essentials of pain management. It covers the tools that can be used to Recognise, Assess and Treat pain. There is also a section on barriers to pain management, the importance of continuing to reassess pain and a series of cases using videos to demonstrate the use of EPM in patients with acute trauma and postoperative pain, cancer pain and chronic non-cancer pain.

The course is run through the Praxhub platform so users need to register to access the course, however this process is quick, easy and free.
