Effectively using Pain Management and Palliative Care in Children’s Cancer Treatment
October 23, 2013
Techniques to address treatment anxiety, introduce pain management, and incorporate alternative methods of pain management
Pain management and palliative care are an essential part of the treatment process for most children’s cancer patients. In this webinar, experts will discuss distraction techniques for managing pain, the physiological responses in the body that cause pain, how to approach procedure anxiety, talking with parents about pain management and palliative care, and how alternative methods of pain management can be incorporated into a treatment plan. A guideline for care will also be presented that will ensure that the entire medical team is involved in a patient’s pain management and palliative care plan.
