Researchers – including a team from the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing (Penn Nursing) and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania – have identified gaps in pain-related education for health care providers that leave out important aspects of safe and effective pain management competencies, including those specific to opioid safety. These findings may help explain one reason for the current public health crisis of inappropriate pain management and prescription drug abuse.
