Module 03 - Pain Management - Barriers to Pain Management & Pain in Special Populations
Pain is one of the most common reasons for patients to seek medical attention and one of the most prevalent medical complaints in the US. Managing pain in special populations can be particularly challenging. Accordingly, physicians and other healthcare providers need education to address prevailing attitudes towards pain, because physician and patient views can present barriers to optimal pain management. Physicians and other healthcare professionals also need education to assist in developing the skills required to evaluate and manage pain in special populations, such as racial and ethnic minorities.
