The IASP Pain Research Forum will host a seminar with Claire Ashton-James, PhD, University of Sydney, Australia. A Q&A session moderated by Jessica Chen, PhD, University of Washington, Seattle, US, will follow the presentation.
Here is an abstract from the presenter:
Pain is an unpleasant experience associated with variable levels of emotional distress. For clinicians who work in pain management, exposure to patient distress is inevitable. It is crucial that clinicians recognise and respond to patient distress – negative emotions such as anxiety, anger, and hopelessness shape patients’ experiences and expectations of care, and can disrupt patient engagement in shared decision-making and deter adherence to treatment advice. Despite the potential for patient distress to derail pain management outcomes, many clinicians are not equipped with skills to identify and respond to patient negative emotions. In this virtual seminar, Dr. Ashton-James will present evidence-based strategies for identifying and responding to patient distress in a manner that builds trust and empowers patients to participate more collaboratively in their care.
