Webinar "How Do We Measure Pain?"

In this webinar, Dr. Sarah Jarvis discusses the reality that pain is a subjective experience, and healthcare professionals must do their best to navigate this journey with their patients. She explains the different aspects of pain, and some tools that can be used to measure, monitor, and assess overall severity. Dr. Jarvis breaks the pain management discussion down into three categories; severity, chronicity, and personal experience. Acceptance and tolerance of chronic pain, and pain-related anxiety, can influence pain perception for patients who face it daily. Chronic pain can be challenging to assess, due to it’s monumental impact on patient lifestyle. Clinicians can support their patients through this journey by using the tools at hand and facilitating open, effective communications.
