The elearning programme “e-PAIN” that was developed by the Faculty of Pain Medicine, The British Pain Society and Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) is the place to start for anyone working in the NHS who wishes to better understand and manage pain.

e-PAIN is a multidisciplinary programme based on the International Association for the Study of Pain’s recommended multidisciplinary curriculum for healthcare professionals learning about pain management. Registration to the programme is free to all NHS staff members.

e-PAIN uniquely distils the knowledge of a range of professionals into 12 modules made up of interactive sessions to meet the needs of a multidisciplinary audience. The modules cover knowledge ranging from how to manage acute pain well, through to in-depth learning about common pain conditions and moves on to cover how to manage pain in specialist areas, such as pain in cancer or pain in childhood.

e-PAIN is current, up to date and presented in an interactive way to make both basic and specialist knowledge accessible.

Any e-PAIN module can be completed stand alone and a downloadable certificate is available upon completion of each module. Most sessions take on average 30 minutes to complete and each module has on average five sessions.
