Kids in Pain: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Pediatric Pain Management

Sessions held every other Tuesday starting April 20th through September 21st from 12:00-1:00pm EST


Chronic pain has a profound impact on children’s function, mood, and quality of life. This course will engage participants in how to deliver practical, effective, multidimensional care for various types of pain conditions.  It will examine the complex, biopsychosocial contributors to the experience of chronic pain and explore the integration of different treatments: pharmacologic, interventionalist, psycho-behavioral, physical and movement therapies, and complementary approaches.  Substance use and mental health interfaces will be addressed throughout.


At the conclusion of this learning activity, (at least 75% of) participants will be able to implement an effective pain management plan after successful completion of an appropriate assessment of children with pain that includes identification of biological, psychosocial and behavioral contributors to pain.
