Pain Management Series



Opportunity to use innovative teaching resources to teach all levels of administering pain to the establishment of pain management within hospitals

Look at innovative approach of preparing anesthesia providers in administering regional blockade to the development of pain management programs in hospitals.

The achievement of this is through the resources available within the Center

Use resources of human cadavers and human patient simulation experiences - Ultrasonography, etc.

What Our Students Are Saying...

"Very realistic simulation. Patient demonstrated high levels of anxiety during the acute chest pain in a believable way. This provided a good example of how someone really might feel and act when experiencing these things."
