Why is it important?
This is the first study to explore the potential of an online approach to improve the knowledge of pain and its management in medical students studying at colleges of medicine located in an African LMIC. It also represents a novel effort to bridge the gap created by the absence of a standardized pain curricula in Nigeria. Findings from this study can encourage adaptation of similar e-learning platforms to other African LMICs requiring pain education in their medical colleges.
