Goals and Learning Outcomes

Pain is often underestimated and undertreated in the pediatric population due to many factors. As a result, children’s health outcomes are directly impacted without proper recognition and pain management, and quality of life is reduced. Physicians and nursing professionals must learn to assess and treat pediatric pain appropriately while caring for hospitalized children. This course describes the past and future status of pain management in children, pharmacological and non-pharmacological management options, and the complexities of managing pain in special populations.

After taking this course, you should be able to:

  • Discuss the past and future status of pain management in children.
  • Describe non-pharmacologic, pharmacologic, and adjuvant treatment options for pain in children.
  • Explain some of the complexities involved in treating the child with chronic pain, cognitive impairments, or a need for palliative care.
