Need for Program

Chronic pain affects many people in the community and is a major clinical challenge and a common reason for people to visit their GP. Often chronic pain is unable to be cured. Because pain is a multidimensional and unique experience, then treatments and nursing care may vary considerably. Knowing and using today’s best evidence in the assessment and management of a person with chronic pain will result in improved function and wellbeing and lessen the high cost of care for all concerned.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this seminar is to provide nurses with knowledge relating to chronic pain and evidence-based management strategies to improve care for people with persistent and advanced pain.
