4PCP: The Primary Practice Practitioner Program for Chronic Pain

  • We have spent 20 years developing the 4PCP curriculum.
  • 4PCP revolutionizes your approach to chronic pain management, to work in an effective team instead of solo.
  • 2013 pilot study showed shorter visit times, less burnout, and better patient outcome

This skill-building workshop is based on the 4 Tenets of 4PCP. At the end of the course, you will be able to:

  1. Learn new thinking about chronic pain and speak the biobehavioral language with your patients and colleagues
  2. Assess your patient’s stage of readiness to change and adjust your own role accordingly, making visits much more efficient
  3. Approach opioid prescribing or tapering in a logical step-wise fashion, the 2-diagnosis conversation with your patients who have a substance use disorder and how to de-escalate a tense conversation
  4. How to have efficient, productive (even fun) communication with your pain managing teammates.

Up to 34 hours of CME/CEU available for all disciplines, not just MDs, and MOC credit 

  • Also fulfills DEA requirement for 8 hours of opioid CME
  • Three Friday afternoon 5-hour workshops, all virtual 
  • Two hours of low-key, entertaining background videos before each workshop
  • Monthly 4PCP ECHO roundtable to discuss new approaches, cases, and challenges
  • Optional practicum in your office (up to 12 hours)
