The essential topic area study guides offer a suite of online learning resources that support and complement the curriculum. The resources focus on integrating the Pain Medicine Roles in Practice with the clinical skills and knowledge of the nine essential topic areas and target a set of learning outcomes from the curriculum.
The essential topic areas modules act as a starting point for each topic area and are used in conjunction with private study and discussion forums to help you build proficiency in an area.
