U067 - Pain-free Dermatology: Minimizing Discomfort in Procedures for Children and Adults

Sunday, February 18; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Evaluate the evidence for different techniques for pain mitigation in children and adults.
  • Discuss the pros and cons of several techniques for dermatology procedure pain control.
  • Utilize the appropriate techniques for procedures in daily practice such as skin biopsy and cryotherapy.

Description

Procedures remain an integral part of Dermatology for both adults and children, and many entail some degree of pain or discomfort. In the past decade, there have been a tremendous number of studies demonstrating evidence for managing pain and anxiety in office and emergency department settings, many of which can be directly applied to Dermatology procedures. In this session, we will outline several techniques for minimizing pain and discomfort, review the supporting evidence, and discuss practical application in a Dermatology office setting.
