Help develop training course for healthcare professionals in managing children and young people’s pain

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.
