Description

Persistent and recurrent pain is a common condition in childhood. Chronic pain can have a negative effect on all aspects of quality of life, including physical, emotional, social and role functioning. A small percentage of these children and young people (5-8%) will experience significant impairments due to their pain condition. Most chronic pain requires a holistic multidisciplinary approach to treatment – pharmacological, physical and psychological strategies.

This learning module reviews the prevalence, pathophysiology, contributing factors, consequences.
