Education Day (click here)


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?

Get the answers to these questions by attending the Education Day!

There will something for everyone working with children – surgeons interested in improving postoperative pain management, pediatricians and nurses dealing with procedural pain and clinicians treating chronic and cancer pain. If you find that managing parents can sometime be a ‘pain’ come and learn the ‘tricks of the trade’ on how to handle them. 

Lectures are from world-renowned researchers and clinicians with vast experience in pediatric pain.
