Thank you all for your ongoing support to promote paediatric pain management. We have been delighted to be able to continue teaching on pain management in children’s palliative care since our last report. We ran an online training on children’s palliative for clinicians in Iraq for the WHO. It was a great experience and we were able to discuss some of the challenges in assessing and managing pain in children, particularly within contexts such as in Iraq. We are now discussing options for ongoing support for the team in Iraq. Other aspects of pain management we are working on is with regards to best practice guidelines and potential priorities for research in pain management.
It is great to be part of a global network committed to children’s palliative care, some of whom we met when we were in India recently at the Indian Association of Palliative Care congress (IAPCON 23). Prior to the conference we helped organise a pre-conference workshop on children’s palliative care in children with non-oncological conditions, with the management of pain and other symptoms for children with neurological conditions, complex heart disease and HIV/AIDS. One of the great things about these workshops is how much we learn from each other and it was a great opportunity of sharing and so good to be back in India after the pandemic. We also had the opportunity to do some training in Ghana in January and to advocate for access to childrens palliative care and pain management.
Our elearning programmes, including the one on pain management continue to be accessed by people around the world with over 8,000 people having accessed our courses from 191 countries. We continue to develop the courses, which are now available in a wide range of languages.
Alongside this, ICPCN are in the process of rebranding and launching a new website, which we hope to do in the next few weeks, so please do look out for thus, and information about our pain app can be found on the new website.
Thank you again for your continued support.
