Chronic Pain in Children: A Survey of North American Pediatric Pain Programs

Chronic pain affects approximately 20-35% of children and adolescents worldwide and causes significant functional and psychological burden for patients and their families.  There is a paucity of high quality evidence to guide pharmacological, behavioral, physical, and interventional treatments in pediatric chronic pain patients, leading to variability in practice among pediatric pain specialists.  We conducted a survey study of North American pediatric pain programs to identify  trends in healthcare provider and practice disposition, patient treatment modalities, and perceived outcome to treatment to ascertain similarities and differences in clinical practice.
