OTs and other health care professionals learn about assessment and intervention for pain in their entry level educational programs. The aim of this study was to identifying gaps and strengths in interdisciplinary health profession curricula as it relates to pain and subsequently the opioid crisis. Participants completed a survey and a focus group. Results show a mutual desire among faculty and students to implement additional pain education.
