Trainee Workshop



Emerging Ethical Considerations in Pain Research & Practice: What Every Trainee Should Know

By: Carley Ouellette, Perri Tutelman, Karen Davis, Christopher DeBow, Dolly Menna-Dack


Advancements in the field of pain have been met with the emergence of new ethical challenges for clinicians and scientists. It is critical for trainees to be aware of this changing landscape and to consider the implications for their work. This interactive workshop will provide an overview of ethical issues relevant to trainees in pain research and practice on topics ranging from ethical considerations in basic science pain research, to ethical issues in clinical pain science and practice, and the ethics surrounding meaningful patient engagement. A diverse panel of speakers will share their perspectives and lived experience with ethical challenges in these domains and provide practical suggestions for trainees to consider as part of their work. First, Dr. Karen Davis will discuss the neuroethical issues of adopting brain imaging to diagnose and treat pain. Next, Ms. Dolly Menna-Dack will speak about unique ethical considerations that trainees should be aware of when designing research and working clinically with the pediatric population. Finally, Mr. Christopher DeBow will cover ethical issues that should be considered by trainees in pain research and patients to help ensure meaningful patient engagement and effective collaboration in pain research.
