“The info was presented in an amazingly detailed way and very very good.”

“…society's increasing issues with drug addiction is making people in the healthcare field more suspicious of those who are experiencing pain of actually being drug seekers, and this course is a good reminder that most people seeking medical help are there for actual medical emergencies.”

“I believe this course is well thought out and provides information and techniques to avoid bias that I had not thought about.”

As clinicians, we strive to provide all our patients the highest quality of care.

This course was co-sponsored and developed through collaboration with The Dalio Center for Health Justice at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

As healthcare providers and clinicians, we are committed to providing the highest quality of care to all our patients. None of us want our patients to suffer unnecessarily, and we want to treat everyone fairly. Yet, studies have documented racial inequities in pain care for Black patients for almost every condition, and setting. Latino patients, women, low income patients, and patients with obesity are also at higher risk of inadequate pain management.

The purpose of this learning experience is to equip you with the essential knowledge and tools needed to ensure that every patient receives the quality of pain treatment we would all want for ourselves and our loved ones.

This learning experience is rooted in rigorous peer-reviewed research and brought to life by composites of real life scenarios from patients and clinicians.

That's where this course comes in.
This evidence-based course will provide insights and proven strategies you can put to work immediately.
