About PAMI


PAMI is a free access online educational and patient safety project. The goal of PAMI is to improve pain recognition, assessment and management in patients of all ages, including special populations. PAMI products are multidisciplinary and can be used by hospitals, EDs, clinics, and other providers. Resources and tools are designed to be used or adapted by any health care facility, school or agency. Collaborators include Florida College of Emergency Physicians, Florida Hospital Association, Society for Pediatric Sedation, and other state and national organizations.

PAMI aims to:

1. Develop a state and national multidisciplinary expert panel who will create a toolkit targeting physicians, nurses, physician assistant, pharmacists, paramedics, hospital patient safety officers, risk managers and other providers;

2. Create a website where the toolkit, educational modules and resources will be housed in an openā€source learning platform offering no cost continuing education credits; and

3. Disseminate website, resources and toolkit to facilitate patient safety and reduce risk in Florida and nationally.
