IASP Curricula

From 2010 to 2012, nine subgroups of the IASP Education Initiatives Working Group developed pain curriculum outlines based on the four components of the IASP Core Curriculum. A broad range of health-care professionals worldwide contributed to the process. In 2017, similar groups reviewed and updated all nine curricula, and the IASP Council has approved the revisions.

IASP encourages the use of these curricula for adoption in medical and health professional education as well as for research purposes. Such use of these curricula is free of charge, but IASP asks viewers first to complete and submit the online declaration form that appears atop each outline. For direct reproduction of any of the curricula in a journal, book, or webpage or for any commercial use, please request permission from IASP. A nominal royalty payment may be required.
