Dates: Nov 19, 24, 26 and Dec 1st, 2015
Location: Killiam Library LINC Room

This IPHE mini course is being offered via the Faculty of Health Professions.  Pain is a multidimensional phenomenon; how it is experienced is influenced to a large extent by one’s cultural beliefs and values.  Using a case-based approach, and diverse faculty this course offers learners from different health and social professions an opportunity to understand what is known about the historical context and how pain is interpreted, experienced and managed within Aboriginal communities.
