Science Café- Treating Acute Pain Experienced by Children: Sharing Evidence and Debunking Myths

March 21 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Join the CTSI and the St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care for a discussion lead by Dr. Amy Drendel, Emergency Department Medical Director, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Associate Professor at the Medical College of Wisconsin, while she talks with us about how pain experienced by children has been historically undertreated.  This may be because assessing a child’s pain is difficult.  There is little evidence to support best treatment for kids with acute illness or injuries. Currently, the opioid epidemic has increased pressures to reduce the use of opioids.

Dr. Drendel will lead a discussion on the current evidence and debunk myths about the assessment and treatment of acute pain with the goal to optimize pain treatment for children.
