Pain changes family dynamics in ways that can generate anger, frustration and dysfunctional communication patterns. Sending the caregiver through Pain University recognizes their need for self-care and the role that they play in litigation.
The Caregiver Course is designed to:
- Provide an abbreviated tutorial on chronic pain
- Facilitate an awareness of the emotional impact of caring for a person with chronic pain
- Facilitate understanding about ways to mitigate the pain experienced by their loved one
- Stress the importance of caregiver self-care and compassion
