The experience of pain is at the same time universal yet unique to every individual. It is a multifaceted subjective experience, so it can be challenging to assess and manage. This is especially true in the pediatric patient population, some of who are not yet verbal. Yet pediatric pain that is not adequately addressed can be detrimental to physical, emotional and academic development. It is critical that healthcare providers be able to evaluate pain in children and provide the means to alleviate it.

This series provides nurses and other healthcare professionals with an understanding of pediatric pain and provides an overview of the assessment and treatment techniques used to alleviate it.

Pediatric pain can be difficult to manage for many healthcare providers, which can lead to undertreatment. There is a common misconception that children experience pain in the same way as adults, but this has been challenged. Nonetheless, the pain must be understood in order for it to be treated or alleviated in any way. Healthcare providers must do all that they can to help pediatric patients describe the pain, so that it can be effectively treated.

The Pediatric Pain Management series has been updated with a new look and feel. This program provides healthcare personnel with the necessary techniques to utilize when treating pediatric pain, as well as working with children to explain it.
