Intended Audience:
This educational opportunity is for health center staff at all levels who work with special populations, including the migratory and seasonal agricultural workers (MSAW) population, or who have an interest in learning more.   

While the assessment and treatment of pain is a universally important health care issue, modern medicine still struggles to agree on a method to measure pain perception. Studies show that although nearly all people experience pain sensations similarly, differences among people based on culture, gender, age, and a variety of characteristics influence the way people express their pain and expect others to respond to their discomfort. There are often conflicting attitudes about using pain medication. An understanding of the impact of culture on the pain experience is important to assuring effective patient care. This session will review a series of considerations when developing an approach to pain management, addressing some of the most common issues faced by patients and providers.
