This e-learning case-based interactive module was developed to teach students important principles for evaluating and managing widespread pain and fibromyalgia. A team of seven experts in education, information technology, pain management, psychiatry, and physical therapy developed the module. Teaching focuses on common errors, interactivity, and expert modeling and feedback.
