    PEDIATRIC PAIN MANAGEMENT: TREATING PEDIATRIC PAIN

    Pediatric pain can be difficult to manage for many healthcare providers, which can lead to undertreatment. There is a common misconception that children experience pain in the same way as adults, but this has been challenged. Nonetheless, the pain must be understood in order for it to be treated or alleviated in any way. Healthcare providers must do all that they can to help pediatric patients describe the pain, so that it can be effectively treated.

    This program provides healthcare personnel with the necessary techniques to utilize when treating pediatric pain, as well as working with children to explain it.

    After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Compare and contrast the different types of non-pharmacological pain treatments
  • Recommend pharmacological pain treatments best for pediatric patients of all ages
  • Define cognitive, behavioral, and physical interventions as non-pharmacological therapies for pain
  • Explain the three-step analgesic ladder for the management of cancer pain
  • Identify techniques to manage different types of pain

    HIDDEN HARM

    In this confronting story, we take you into the lives of three everyday Australian families grappling with the consequences of drinking in pregnancy. The children face a devastating range of problems, from behavioural issues to learning difficulties, collectively known as Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. And it's much more common than you might think. Best projections indicate it could affect more than half a million Australians. "I think the burdeníK is predominantly in the white middle class." Paediatrician

    We go inside Australia's first dedicated clinic where specialists are diagnosing and tackling the disorder, and warn that some children diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) are actually suffering the effects of foetal alcohol exposure.

    "We regard foetal alcohol spectrum disorder as being the driver for ADHD." Paediatrician. The doctors also caution that Australia's heavy drinking culture overshadows the concerns we should have about women drinking alcohol in pregnancy.

    "A woman does not have to be an alcoholic [to cause damage]." Psychologist

    FAMILY MATTERS: COMING TOGETHER FOR ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE

    By Barbara Moscowitz, Garrett Strang & Wendy McGrane Strang

    Early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease can afford families much needed time to develop plans for coping with the profound emotional, physical, and financial changes the disease may bring. Family Matters brings to life the challenges families face upon receiving the diagnosis that a family member is forever changed, and that they must find new ways to relate and communicate within a family redefined by the disease.

    Featuring Joanne Koenig Coste, Med, author of the groundbreaking Learning to Speak Alzheimer's, and Barbara Moscowitz, MSW, LICSW, of the Geriatric Medicine Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital, this engaging program offers caregivers and family members some valuable guideposts along the frightening and humbling journey through Alzheimer's: learning about the illness and its treatments, planning for the challenges that await the family, restructuring the family system to adapt to the patient's changing needs, and learning the process of what Coste calls "habilitation," a practical and philosophical approach to understanding the language and behavior of the Alzheimer's patient.

    Caregivers need to accept not only the changes in their loved one, but their own troubling and contradictory feelings as well. They will need to learn new kinds of communication, and how to listen to the emotions behind the failing words. Sometimes this will require entering the emotional world of the person with Alzheimer's, rather than always trying to pull him or her back into the "real" world. Support groups and social services can be enormously helpful but, most of all, families need to confront the challenge together. A Resource Journal is included with the program. From the Geriatric Medicine Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital.
