As a result of recent events concerning analgesic medications, the American Society of Pain Educators (ASPE) is developing a pain-education training program for pharmaceutical sales representatives. The goal of the program is to support sales representatives and medical liaisons by providing the most current information regarding pain management therapies to prescribing physicians. The training will also offer the representatives the opportunity to become Certified Pain Specialty Representatives.
"Prescribing clinicians look to sales representatives for quick access to important information. Training them with a fair-balanced curriculum will help them help the busy practitioners stay current in a regulatory-challenged world," said B. Eliot Cole, MD, MPA, executive director of the ASPE.
