Pain Management
7/30/2012
Pain serves to alert a person to potential or actual damage to the body. The definition for damage is quite broad: pain can arise from injury as well as disease. After the message is received and interpreted, further pain can be counterproductive. Pain can have a negative impact on a person's quality of life and impede recovery from illness or injury, thus contributing to escalating health care costs.
Unrelieved pain can become a syndrome in its own right and cause a downward spiral in a person's health and outlook. Managing pain properly facilitates recovery, prevents additional health complications, and improves an individual's quality of life. Effective application of pain management techniques reduces or eliminates acute or chronic pain. This treatment can improve an individual's quality of life and aid in recovery from injury and disease.

The Pedagogy Philosophy

Pedagogy is the art and science of teaching, instruction and training. It is the goal of Pedagogy to offer the most current course content, at the highest possible quality, using a variety of education methods and strategies. Attainment of licensure and formal education is not the end of education. Professionals, both practitioners and educators, are responsible to continually develop their knowledge and skills. Through continuing education and self directed professional growth, health care providers are better prepared to deliver quality care to their patients.
