Event description

Description

Pain is a very distressing symptom for many and may be experienced by patients with life limiting diseases. This day will help healthcare professionals to address and manage pain in palliative care and introduces the concept of “Total Pain” and how it may be experienced by patients.

This Study Day is aimed at:

Healthcare professionals who are caring for palliative patients and their families in any setting.


This session will cover:

  • Gain an overview of the physiology of pain
  • Identify different pain types and their treatment
  • Understand the skills required to assess and manage pain effectively, incorporating a multi-disciplinary approach
  • Discuss the pharmacological management of pain
  • Explore non-pharmacological management of pain
  • 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
  • Define ‘Total Pain’ – what is it and how it manifests itself
  • Explore what we can do to help someone experiencing total pain

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.
