The Translational Research Institute on Pain in Later Life
Join Jennifer Stinson, RN-EC, PhD, CPNP, from The Hospital for Sick Children, at the upcoming webinar - One size doesn't fit all: Personalized digital health approaches to chronic disease management, on Monday, January 25, from 3 pm - 4 pm EDT.
One in five Canadian children and youth will suffer from recurrent or chronic pain. Many children with chronic pain do not have access to an integrated care approach, which encompasses multiple treatment modalities (pharmacological, physical and psychological) to address the multifaceted nature of this condition. The use of digital health technologies has facilitated access to appropriate and timely care. Dr. Stinson will provide examples of web and smartphone based applications for the assessment and management of chronic pain in children. She will also discuss how this research has applications for the management of pain in older adults.
