Cancer Pain Treatment and Management: an Interprofessional Learning Module forPrelicensure Health Professional Students

This learning module uses chronic pain care as the context through which students can learn interprofessional, team- based, person- centered approaches to delivery of care. Using the facilitator’s guide, handouts, and other materials developed for this project, this learning module can be delivered as an in -person training session (approximately 120 minutes) for small groups of learners (teams of 8 -12 students drawn from multiple health care professions or schools). Pre -learning materials and post -session activities are included that can enhance the experience.
