This online activity is designed for primary care physicians and specialists and other interdisciplinary team members including physical therapists, nurse practitioners, and occupational therapists. The Office of Continuing Medical Education created the pain series as an outreach for California physicians. This series in pain management and end-of-life was created without any pharmaceutical support. It features UC Davis pain specialists who are faculty physicians in the field of pain and palliative medicine.

California Assembly Bill 487, signed into law on October 4, 2001, requires most California-licensed physicians to take, as a one-time requirement, 12 units of continuing medical education (CME) on "pain management" and "the appropriate care and treatment of the terminally ill." The bill, which has become Business and Professions Code section 2190.5, exempts pathologists and radiologists.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.

The University of California, Davis Health System designates this enduring material activity for a maximum of 12.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. No partial credit is available for this activity.
