What’s covered during the day?
Pain is a multidimensional phenomenon and as such it needs to be managed through multidisciplinary initiatives. These initiatives must be based on specialist knowledge, rigorous research and an advanced understanding of the physiological and behavioural concepts involved.
Pain is one of the most challenging problems in healthcare.
- It is a challenge to the sufferer who must often learn to live in pain for which no therapy has been found to completely eliminate their pain.
- It is a challenge for the healthcare professionals who seek every possible means to help relieve the patient’s discomfort
Pain Management is a branch of medicine that employs an interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with pain.
Different types of pain exist from acute pain (short term pain) to chronic pain (long term condition). Each of these types of pain can involve a different management strategy – sometimes a single practitioner providing pain relieving drugs and other times, a multidisciplinary team consisting of medical practitioners, psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapist, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
This course is designed to meet the needs of healthcare professionals who work with patients in pain.
