Management Education Program Requirements
Licensed health care professionals must complete a pain management education
program in order to improve the care and treatment of individuals with painful
conditions. The program includes:
accredited hours of continuing education in pain management, end of life care
or a combination of both; and
web-based training offered by the Commission.
Dentists licensed under Oregon Board of Dentistry are only required to complete
the web-based training offered by the Commission.
(2) For out
of state health care professionals obtaining Oregon licensure or newly licensed
health care professionals within Oregon, the pain management education program
must be completed within 24 months of their first license renewal.
Example: If an individual becomes newly
licensed in Oregon on June 15, 2009, their first renewal will be June 15, 2011.
The individual may obtain their training from June 15, 2009 through June 15,
2013 under section (2) to comply with this requirement.
(3) If the
licensing board for a licensed health care professional adopts, by rule, a pain
management education program with topics substantially similar to the topics in
the Commission’s curriculum, that program satisfies this rule for the
continuing education portion of the requirement, as long as the total number of
hours is the same.
Commission shall review its curriculum every two years and update as needed.
