Pain Management, Addiction Medicine, and Opioid Education
AAMC-member medical schools and teaching hospitals are on the front lines in our communities dealing with the opioid epidemic: responding with new approaches to prevent, identify, and treat pain and substance use disorders, delivering pain management and addiction education, and leading efforts in this area to advance medical research and promote innovations in clinical care.
To foster collaboration by educators and their partners to advance pain management, addiction medicine, and opioid education, the AAMC is hosting this resource repository, featuring new approaches and best practices when it comes to improving how we teach and train. This resource collection, curated by collection editor Lisa Howley, PhD, allows for the agile sharing and disseminating of educational innovations.
We are actively seeking submissions. Examples of appropriate resources may include checklists, worksheets, lesson plans, cases, or lecture outlines. To be successfully included in the resource collection, submissions are required to:
- Address acute and chronic pain management and substance use disorders (including prevention, screening, intervention, treatment and long-term recovery)
- Include a structured cover sheet detailing the title of the activity, background on its development and implementation, lessons learned, and future directions
- Adhere to the Creative Commons license Attribution-NonCommercial
