The AzPA Pain Management Certificate Program (PMCP) is an innovative and comprehensive learning activity developed to assist pharmacists to maintain and enhance their professional competencies in pain management.  Upon completion of the PMCP, pharmacists will be able to ensure optimal medication therapy outcomes and patient safety, recommend non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic therapies, provide medication management in various health care settings, develop new roles and responsibilities for a pharmacist, and obtain educational requirements for pharmacist re-licensure. 

Arizona Pharmacy Association Pain Management Program is conducted in two parts: the self-study readings and learning exercises, and one live webinar training session on the pharmacist's roles in chronic pain management and how to communicate with patients and providers about issues related to common pain syndromes, monitoring, and treatment approaches. A Certificate of Achievement (in PDF format) will be awarded to participants who successfully complete ten home-study modules, participate in the live webinar and pass an examination that is applicable to the practice of pharmacy.
