Event description

Description

Suitable for healthcare professionals who are caring for palliative patients in any setting.

Pain is a very distressing symptom for many cancer patients. The incidence of pain is also very significant in patients with life limiting non-malignant diseases such as heart failure and respiratory failure.

In this course learners will:

  • Gain an overview of the physiology of pain, looking at different pain medications
  • Understand the skills required to access and manage pain effectively, incorporating a multi-disciplinary approach
  • Identify different pain types and their treatment
  • Explore the concept of emotional, psychological, social and spiritual pain and gain an understanding on how these experiences impact on the individual’s pain experience
  • Discuss the pharmacological management of pain
  • Explore non-pharmacological management of pain
  • Understand barriers to pain control

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Car parking is available at the adjacent Babraham Road Park and Ride CB22 3AB. Use the footpath to the hospice (approx 5-10 minutes walk), near the entrance to the P&R. To save time you can pay for your parking online.

Use the following post code CB22 3AB as Sat Nav and online maps currently do not recognise the correct location of the Hospice's postcode.

There is car parking at the Hospice for those with disabilities or mobility issues.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Refreshments are included and visitors are welcome to use the Bistro for lunch.
