Gender in Pain management

Session outline

Chronic pain is subject to influence from a multitude of factors, encompassing genetics, hormones, anatomy, and psychology. It is worth noting that there is a greater incidence of chronic pain among the female population. The symposium also sheds light on the gender-specific challenges associated with chronic pain syndromes, such as chronic pelvic pain and chronic myofascial pain syndrome, through the utilization of advanced rehabilitation management techniques.

Learning outcomes

  1. Participants will gain skills to assist in recognizing and ameliorating differences in care for women compared to men and be able to apply those skills in chronic pain syndromes. 
  2. Participants will be able to apply gender-focused rehabilitation approaches to optimize outcomes and improve health and functionality for individuals seeking recovery from a wide variety of chronic pain conditions. 

Target audience

We expect that this short workshop will be attractive to

  • Administrators
  • Policy makers
  • Rehabilitation Physicians
  • Allied health
  • Medical practitioners
  • Students
  • Trainees
  • Nursing staff
