Course Description:

Pediatric pain is a major public health issue affecting rising economic costs, repeated emergency department visits, poor pain management and potentially leading to decreased quality of life and increased disability (International Association for the Study of Pain, 2005; 2019). Pediatric headaches are one of the most common psychophysiological conditions affecting children and adolescents at various ages and etiologies. Estimates of headache prevalence range from 57-82% in children and adolescents 8-15 years of age (Singhi, Jacobs, and Gladstein, 2014; Straube et al., 2013).The International Association Study of Pain has highlighted the need for improvements in pain education, feasible short-term solutions, and early recognition and prevention.


This presentation will discuss a comprehensive approach to identifying and treating at-risk youth with a primary focus on prevention. Additionally, this talk will include a brief review of an ongoing piloted triage/referral model of care and previous significant results of a comprehensive brief biofeedback-based Intervention for pediatric headache. This symposium will address how to improve the communication or "buy in" from these families that are only seeking a medical approach to their child's pain, effective ways of communicating pain education to children, families and medical teams, a brief review of various models of pain and its’ complexities and how to apply and practice various ways to disseminate pain education.
