This course has also made me self aware of my risk factors and how to improve my acute pain before it becomes chronic. It was very informative and rich in details and tools. Thank you.
very interesting perpective for both patients and healthcare workers- Once again highlighting the need for interprofessional teamwork that centers around the individual patient

Considero que es un curso muy completo, y que abarca el dolor crónico desde todas las aristas, lo que me agradó muchísimo. Sin embargo, creo que algunas semanas no estaban bien equilibradas, ya que abarcaban módulos distribuidos de forma desigual, lo que hacía que algunas semanas fueran mucho más "pesadas" y demandantes que otras. La otra crítica que hago es que algunos docentes no se mostraban a gusto dictando su módulo, por lo que no usaban lenguaje no verbal (tono, proyección e inflexiones de la voz) lo que dificultaba mantener la atención en los contenidos. Fuera de eso, me gustó el curso y aprendí muchísimo.

Excellent in terms of learning how to manage your own pain conditions and improve quality of life. Some of the sections were very technical and aimed at those with medical training. All modules (including the very technical ones) had a quiz at the end which had an 80% pass rate before you could move on to the next section. This was challenging but not impossible.
A lot of highly valuable information that I wish more patients and health professionals were aware of.

The course was excellent - well organized, informative, and presented by a good number of experts in their respective areas. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because some parts might be a little challenging for people without some knowledge of physiology and medical terminology. I learned a lot and feel much better equipped to discuss my own issues with healthcare providers. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this MOOC.
Cours intéressant, j'en ai appris beaucoup plus et je conseille à toutes personnes avec des douleurs ou vivant avec une personne ayant des douleurs chroniques à suivre ce cours car cela permet de comprendre mieux le pourquoi de l'attitude des autres et comment réagir face à une personne qui souffre.

I enjoyed the presentation style of Dr Fricton and the guest presenters. I learnt how to be a better patient and work on things that will help my own pain. I am not in the health field, yet still an interesting course.

El curso es muy bueno pero al ser en inglés es un poco mas complicado de realizar, por favor intenten hacer una versión en español. Gracias

MOTIVATING LEARNING EXPERIENCE
By Louise H•
Some module gave an interesting perspective on Chronic pain, its prevelance, complexity and multitude of considerations needed in managing and treating pain symptoms. Some of the wording and concepts require updating, as they are no longer based on up-to-date and evidence-based information. But overall a good introduction to chronic pain and its management.

Quality varied a lot due to a different medical professional presenting each week

good content, but very American

Very disappointed with the information provided. I went through the second week, completing all assignments and quizzes, but did not learn anything new. Most of the information provided is common knowledge anymore. I was also a little put off by the frequent self promotions by the instructor, in reference to his treatment center, organizations and book. I am withdrawing from the class.

Highly outdated material on posture and myofascial pain. Having said that, I am unnable to trust the rest of the provided information because I'm left wondering about the rest of the material
