Opioids for Chronic Pain

On demand

This self-assessment module, accredited by both the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the College of Family Physicians of Canada, will enable participants to improve their opioid prescribing practices by engaging with the most current and updated 2017 Canadian Opioid Guideline and literature.

The Online Opioid Self-Assessment Program (SAP) consists of a knowledge assessment where participants receive feedback about their knowledge base and gaps using case-based interactive knowledge questions. The feedback allows participants to identify specific areas for improvement and build appropriate learning plans as they are given a list of pertinent courses, workshops and reading materials to address their knowledge gaps.

The program is easily accessible and highly interactive, and it uses assessment as a technique for knowledge exchange and guideline implementation. Various styles are employed to keep you engaged and apply it in practice to facilitate active learning.
