Education Day Programme - 6th July 2017

 

Have you ever wondered if babies can actually feel pain? Do these painful experiences during the early years have any long-term impact? Do friends influence pain management? Does self hypnosis work for children with pain?

This year’s Education Day promises an exciting update on a broad range of topics with something for everyone! From surgeons who might beinterested in post operative pain management and paediatricians who deal with procedural pain or to all who treat children with chronic pain. If you find that managing parents can sometimes be a ‘pain’, come and learn the ‘tricks of the trade’ on how to handle them. 

A special highlight of this year’s Education day is a half day hands-on workshop on ultrasound guided regional blocks in children. This hands-on workshop is limited to 30 participants, so register early to avoid disappointment!
