On February 27, The Joint Commission released “Speak Up: About Your Pain,” an engaging animated video that illustrates why it is important for patients to speak up about their pain and provides easy-to-understand examples for the general public. The video’s main characters, Henry and Julie, experience different kinds of pain: aching, throbbing, dull, shooting and cramping.
The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is sponsoring a free webinar, "Challenges in the Management of Opioid-Using Patients in Emergency Departments," on March 13 at 12:30-2 p.m. ET.
