Join us for an insightful one-hour discussion as we delve into pediatric pain management, an essential aspect of providing optimal care for our youngest patients. The goal of this activity is for learners to be able to identify different pain conditions in children, to better understand pain in the context of child development, and to be better able to respond appropriately to pediatric pain with nonpharmacological and pharmacologic treatments. Together, we will explore evidence-based strategies for the effective assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of pain in children. The session aims to increase knowledge and improve the provision of care for children experiencing pain. Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your expertise and enhance your ability to provide compassionate care to improve the lives of children experiencing pain.
