About the webinar: Pain is a common feature of chronic medical conditions in children, rational management of which often requires an interdisciplinary multi-modal approach. Numerous non-pharmacologic interventions and non-opioid medications may be effective, potentially reducing requirement for opioid. Chronic opioid may be appropriate in some settings, but is associated with significant inherent risk and frequently daunting regulatory logistics. This webinar, the fourth in a series of 6 sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics, will review management strategies and therapeutic options for rational pain management in children with chronic medical conditions.

Educational objectives:

  • Review types of pain experienced by children with chronic medical conditions.
  • Discuss non-opioid options for pharmacologic analgesia in children with chronic pain.
  • Describe the reasonable goals of therapy and appropriate ongoing control measures for children on chronic opioid.
