Check Out this Free Resource: Pain Assessment and Management Initiative

The University of Florida College of Medicine and several collaborators have created the Pain Assessment and Management Initiative (PAMI) to “improve pain recognition, assessment, and management in patients of all ages, including special populations.” It is an online learning tool to educate medical professionals on patient safety.

PAMI is an open-source, multidisciplinary resource designed for hospitals, emergency departments, clinics, and other providers. It includes Learning Modules with free CME/CEUs, a downloadable dosing guide for both adults and children, and much more.

Check out PAMI’s website today for more information.
