What is the Behavioral Pain Management Community of Practice?

This will be a way for us to enhance communication across the system, share resources, troubleshoot barriers, and encourage best practices. We look forward to establishing this COP and coming together to grow and support each other.  If you would like to be a member of this COP, please join our Microsoft Teams here Behavioral Pain Management Community of Practice Team!
