Assessment of Pain in Special Populations

Price: $14.95 Hours:1 Contact Hour
Item # N1548  

Performing a pain assessment is routine for many of us. But identifying pain and evaluating the effectiveness of pain treatments can be a challenge in patients who are non-verbal, confused, or who have intellectual or developmental disabilities. These individuals may not recognize their own pain and are at risk for inadequate assessment of pain. This informative continuing education course shares numerous tools and instruments as well as techniques that can be used to assess pain in special populations such as neonates, infants, children, older adults, patients with cognitive impairments, and/or developmental disabilities. Includes case studies.

Michigan Nurses - This fulfills your pain and pain symptom management requirement.

Chronic Pain Management: A Psychosocial Perspective

Price: $19.95 Hours:4 Contact Hours
Item # N1549  

This course provides nurses with a fresh perspective on chronic pain. It highlights the nature and scope of chronic pain, discusses basic skills for effective assessment, and describes nonpharmacological adjunctive treatments for chronic pain and related problems. The course opens with a discussion of the elements of pain, which include biological pain (nociception), pain perception, cognitive-emotional responses, and sociopolitical context. After examining the physiological principles that underlie pain, the course distinguishes acute from chronic pain and explains the factors that contribute to pain becoming chronic. The impact of chronic pain on physical functioning, health, and quality of life is examined. Nurses will learn about the prevalence of pain; racial, ethnic, and age-related differences in the experience of pain; and the social cost of pain. The course describes types of pain, including musculoskeletal, cephalalgic (headache), and neuropathic pain, and the effects of pain, such as physical activity limitations, sleep disruption, fatigue, depression, irritability, and disruptions in family and social support. A description of selected assessment tools and interview procedures is provided. Assessment techniques include the clinical interview, the brief clinical interview, and self-report instruments. The discussion of pharmacological treatment of pain includes information on medication misuse and medication adherence. Nurses will also learn about complementary and alternative medicine approaches and psychosocial treatments, such as feedback-based intervention, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and relaxation training. Barriers to effective pain care are discussed, such as provider attitudes and training, insurance coverage, and geographic and regulatory barriers. The appendixes include numerous pain assessment tools and an outline of a typical CBT intervention for chronic pain.
