VA North Texas Health Care System
The pain management rotation offers experiences in assessing and managing various types of pain. The participant will function as an integral part of an interdisciplinary team in a hospice setting. With a focus on patient-centered care, this rotation considers the nuance of race, class, and culture and how they impact perceptions and experiences of pain and end of life care. By the end of the rotation, the participant will have an understanding of patient-centered pain management which can be built upon to effectively participate in pain management in a multi-cultural world.
