Course Overview

Nurses and physicians are confronted daily with the responsibility to care for hospitalized children in pain. Nurses observe the patient 24 hours a day and thus become the pivotal group of healthcare professionals involved in the process of proper assessment and intervention. Nurses and physicians must learn to assess and treat pediatric pain appropriately. This course describes how to recognize pediatric pain and the barriers to its effective treatment, how to assess pain, pharmacological and nonpharmacological management options, and the complexities of managing pain in special populations.
