The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) has received funding to develop an online training course for doctors and senior healthcare professionals who are responsible for managing Children and Young People’s Pain.
In order to ensure the training course enables doctors to meet the needs of children, young people and their families, they would like to know what competencies, skills, knowledge, attitudes and beliefs you would expect from a doctor or senior health professional managing pain in a baby, child or young person.
They have issued two online surveys in order to find out more about the experiences of patients, parents and carers.
The RCPCH would like you to tell them about your own experience of pain, and the interventions that you have found to be helpful or difficult in relation to your overall care.
They would also like to find out about your experience of caring for a child who has either experienced or is experiencing pain, and the interventions that you found to be helpful or difficult in relation to their overall care. Pleas note that in this survey the term ‘child’ refers to all ages from birth to 24 years.
Both surveys take about 10 minutes to complete and the results will help to write the brief for the development of learning content.
