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 have begun work this month on the best practice guidelines linked to the revised WHO pain guidelines, and will be working on the research strategy in the New Year. Alongside this we have been able to support some participants, with St Jude’s, to undertake the EPEC paediatrics course which was run by the Maruza Foundation and we are looking forward to hearing how the course has impacted on the care that they provide, particularly in relation to 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 have started our webinar series based around the book that we edited: Children’s Palliative Care: An International Case-Based Manual. The webinars take place on the third Thursday of each month and in December we hope to focus on pain assessment and management and are looking forward to the discussion and input from around the world. Last month we took part in the EAPC conference on palliative care, and helped to facilitate a pre-conference workshop with the WHO, where we specifically looked at the revised pain guidelines and how these are being utilised in different contexts.
There continue to be many new and exciting opportunities ahead of us and look forward to collaborating with many of you as we seek to improve access to children’s palliative care and pain management around the world.
