Thank you all for your ongoing support to promote paediatric pain management. Whilst the world continues to be dominated by the Covid-19 pandemic, the issue of pain management remains high on the agenda of many, as the care of children in pain continues to be challenging, with the need for education greater than ever. We continue to go through each of our elearning courses updating them. Following on from the publication of the revised WHO pain guidelines in February 2021 we have put out a call for experts from around the world to join us in developing and defining global best practice guidelines as well as developing a strategy for global research in pain in children’s palliative care. We are excited with the opportunity to do this work and it will all link into our ongoing work on promoting paediatric pain management.
We have continued to be involved in a range of webinars, providing education and information on children’s palliative care and in particular pain management for individuals from around the world. We worked with the Palliative care Education and Research Consortium to deliver some virtual training in children’s palliative care for 42 health professionals from 7 districts of Uganda. This was a 5-day training carried out in 2 sessions and is being followed by clinical placements Covid permitting. Issues of pain assessment and management were covered in the first week of the training. We continue to hear stories about how individuals are utilising our Pain App in their day-to-day work, and are learning how to assess and manage pain in children. This is encouraging and great to know that the App is being used and is helpful. We have also submitted several funding applications for ongoing training in pain assessment and management for children’s palliative care.
So, despite the challenges due to the ongoing pandemic, it is exciting to look at the new and different opportunities ahead of us and we look forward to the ongoing work that ICPCN is involved in with regards to children’s pain assessment and management and to collaborating with many of you on this.
