Training sites

The Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM) accredits multidisciplinary pain management units to provide approved training during the core training stage. FPM assesses the unit’s ability to provide training and supervision to the required standard, and its degree of compliance with By-law 19, Accreditation of units offering training in pain medicine and the accompanying FPM accreditation handbook.

 

Units are accredited either as a level 1 or level 2 unit as defined in by-law 19. Each accredited training unit has a supervisor of training (SOT) who is broadly responsible for pain medicine training. They oversee each trainee’s clinical performance and workplace-based assessments, and perform in-training assessments and training stage reviews throughout the core training stage.

 

The Training Unit Accreditation Committee (TUAC) oversees this process and makes recommendations based on reviewers’ reports. Accreditation is based on information provided by the unit, coupled with an onsite visit by two reviewers.

 

Units wishing to apply for accreditation should contact painmed@anzca.edu.au.
