Provincial Pediatric Pain Symposium

July 1, 2017

Our community partner, Pain BC, is holding the Second BC Provincial Pediatric Pain Management Symposium September 22 - 24, 2017. We are pleased to tell you about this event, and to share that The Arthritis Society, BC & Yukon Division, is a proud sponsor.

Using lectures and case-based breakout sessions and discussions, the symposium will provide holistic and multidisciplinary perspective on the management of children's complex/chronic pain, and on the prevention and management of chronic post-surgical pain.

The symposium is designed for all health care providers (e.g. physicians, nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists, social workers, and occupational therapists) to enhance expertise in the field of pediatric pain assessment and management.  Health sciences students and residents are particularly encouraged to attend to build their skills early in their careers in chronic pain assessment and management in children and teens.

People living with pain and their families and friends are also welcome to attend. There is a free/by donation evening talk on September 22 that is specifically for the general public. This is a meaningful opportunity to learn more, and we invite you to share this information with anyone you feel would be interested.
