This is Module 3 of 3 within the Pain in People with Developmental Disabilities webinar series, part of the Professional Development Webinars focused on individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). This webinar addresses general principles of pain and its individual variables; how medications sensitize people with developmental disabilities to pain; changes in pain management medications; varieties of chronic pain syndrome. It is intended to benefit nurses, social workers, counselors, and other healthcare professionals who have contact with individuals with developmental disabilities.
