Pain reduction in dressing changes in children with EB

Psychological strategies, tips and tricks

In children with epidermolysis bullosa (EB), the regular dressing change can be very painful and can be a heavy burden for the whole family and also helpers. In addition to the pain itself, the fear of pain can complicate the dressing change. The good thing is that you can positively influence the pain experience!

The workshop will be about getting information about factors that influence pain (both negative and positive). You will learn many coping strategies to positively influence the pain. In addition, we will talk about the stress management and counseling of the parents. Based on a model film, the implementation of the contents is exemplified. A possible drug-based pain therapy is not part of the workshop.
