Goal and Learning Outcomes

The goal of this continuing education program is to emphasize the important role culture plays when patients experience pain. The program also addresses the patient, provider, and systemic factors associated with disparities in pain assessment, management, and treatment along with regulatory requirements from The Joint Commission relative to pain management. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe how culture can influence a patient’s perception and expression of pain
  • Determine how cultural background affects a healthcare professional’s response to and management of pain
  • Relate strategies for reducing unintentional bias in pain assessment and promoting management decisions to respond to a patient’s pain in a culturally sensitive manner
