Upon completion of this module the participant should be able to:

  • Understand the multifactorial nature of chronic non-cancer pain and the requirement for an individualised, multimodal and multidisciplinary management approach.
  • Apply a biopsychosocial approach to chronic non-cancer pain
  • Selectively use analgesics for chronic non-cancer pain
  • Understand the importance of continued monitoring of pain, function, adverse effects during opioid therapy.
