Online training programme in Pain Management

Due to popular demand JIP announces the online training programme in pain management. In fact Dr. Muralidhar Joshi was the first person to launch this kind of training programme in India in association with corporate hospitals. Busy and budding clinicians can avail this unique opportunity to learn about the successful way of managing chronic pain syndromes, establishing acute pain service etc. JIP guides them to start a pain clinic at their own place. We discuss about the requirements to start a pain clinic, common pain conditions encountered and solutions for those problem. Interventional techniques along with an orientation for imaging modalities will be discussed.

Keeping in mind varying requirements of medical professionals, we have divided the online training programme into basic and advanced courses. Both the courses will cater to needs of the relevant clinician groups. The need for division into two courses arises in view of varied clinical training and skills. More details are as follows;

Our course is based on these guidelines set by the International Body with necessary modification to make it more interesting and practicable.
