September 22, 2017 - September 24, 2017
Join BC Children’s Hospital Department of Psychology, UBC’s Department of Pediatrics and Anesthesia, Pain BC and the Arthritis Society for an educational event focused on best practice pediatric pain management.
Using lectures and case-based breakout sessions and discussions, the symposium will provide holistic and multidisciplinary perspectives on the management of children’s complex/chronic pain, and on the prevention and management of chronic post-surgical pain.
The symposium is designed for all health care providers (e.g. physicians, nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists, social workers, and occupational therapists) to enhance expertise in the field of pediatric pain assessment and management. Health sciences students and residents are particularly encouraged to attend to build their skills early in their careers.
People living with pain and their families and friends are also welcome to attend. There is a free/by-donation evening talk on September 22 (7:00-9:00 p.m.) that is specifically for the general public. You’ll learn about the Aboriginal Children’s Hurt & Healing Initiative and Art for Healing, including Art from the Heart, a travelling artwork exhibition created by Aboriginal children. This is a meaningful opportunity to learn more, and we invite you to share this information with anyone you feel would be interested.
