Here is an abstract for the webinar:

With few exceptions, a minimum amount of pain content has been documented in health sciences curricula and much of that has been fragmented by profession and delivered within a crowded agenda of conventional course topics such as anatomy and physiology. Most health professionals learn pain management on the job and are often ill prepared to function as team members in the real world. Interprofessional education (IPE) is a growing trend across health professions and has been defined as when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care. The focus of this webinar will be to describe IPE and provide strategic and practical approaches to facilitate pain education using IPE.
