Pediatric Chronic Pain and the Role of Occupational Therapy

Pediatric Chronic Pain and the Role of Occupational Therapy

Pediatric chronic pain affects millions of youth in the United States and approximately one in five children in Canada (Canadian Pain Society, 2014). These youth experience a significant decline in occupational performance and engagement in meaningful activities. Youth with chronic pain demonstrate limited ability to manage and cope with the pain, leaving them isolated, deconditioned and reliant on the healthcare system for medical interventions.
This webinar will provide an overview of pediatric chronic pain conditions, as well as highlight the essential occupational therapy role in assisting in treatment of the physical symptoms, emotional components and social components of chronic pain.

This purchase is for the November 22, 2016 Lunch & Learn webinar presentation web link archive. The archive purchase will be in the format of a web-based link that will be emailed to you separately in the following business days.
