PainTx.ClinicalEncounters.com was developed by Clinical Tools, Inc (CTI) with funding from the National Institute of Drug Abuse (#1R44DA035042). We gratefully acknowledge this support, which was the sole funding source for this project’s development.
An epidemic of addiction to prescription pain medications now causes deaths due to overdose that outnumber automobile-related deaths, rising admissions to hospitals, and disrupted lives for both the patient and family.
Clinical Encounters: PainTx has developed a collection of didactic training modules and interactive patient case experiences to help providers enhance their clinical skills and test practice change through deliberate practice via simulated (i.e., computer-generated) patients.
Continuing Medical Education
Clinical Tools does not participate in the delivery of complete and finalized training experiences. Nor do we participate when decisions have already been made regarding the practice gaps, content, delivery, authorship, or the assessment of the intervention. We only provide Category I CME (TM) for an activity when we are closely involved in meeting all of the ACCME requirements, including the collection, storage, and analysis of data on the impact of the activity on competence, performance, or patient outcomes.
No Industry Support
All materials on this website were developed in an industry-fund-free environment. No industry funding was used to create this website or these educational activities.
Clinical Encounters: PainTx will not only help providers enhance their clinical skills and test practice change, but also allow clinic leaders and health care organizations to implement a comprehensive continuing health professional development (CHPD) program.
Clinical Tools, and its gaming division Health Impact Studio, strives to share knowledge gained through the testing and use of its products. You can see our latest conference presentations, as well as our published research articles, at the Health Impact Studio site.
