The practice of pediatric pain management has developed significantly in the last decade with the use and validation of pain assessment tools specific to pediatric patients, yielding evidence-based pain management guidelines in children of all ages.
Still, pharmacological intervention options coupled with practicing safe prescribing can be overwhelming in the primary care setting. In today’s episode we are joined by Tom Majcher, DO, to discuss a practical approach to outpatient pain management in pediatrics and the prevalence of conditions associated with acute and chronic pain.
Dr. Majcher is Chair of Anesthesiology at Children’s Hospital Colorado and Professor of Anesthesiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
