The current state of pediatric pain care leaves much room for improvement.
While the prevalence of pediatric pain is on the rise, the expertise to address these needs is lacking.
The medical training programs currently lack the appropriate curricula to provide expertise in pediatric pain medicine.
The ever evolving landscape of healthcare, rising healthcare costs, imbalance between the time available for patient-doctor/clinician interaction, the increasing amounts of documentation, checkboxes for billing and compliance, countless forms, and threat of liability and malpractice risk , are leaving patients and the healthcare providers increasingly frustrated and dissatisfied. Despite the increasing expenses, these changes in healthcare have failed to result in same degree of improvement in the healthcare outcomes.
There is increasing incidence of burnout amongst healthcare providers and declining patient & family satisfaction with healthcare especially as it relates to their pain management needs.
