Pediatric Pain Management

Overview

According to the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, more than 5,000,000 children in the United States had a hospital stay in 2017. Many of them experienced some type of pain. Pain has an immense impact on the mind and body. In addition to the physical sensation of pain, effects include emotional suffering, pulmonary complications, decreased mobility, poor sleep, immune impairment, reduced quality of life, economic costs, and a potential for developing persistent (chronic) pain syndromes. Despite advances in care, many children continue to experience significant pain because of undertreatment and inadequate pain management after surgery. Sparing children the short and long-term effects of pain requires early recognition and treatment.

Key Learning Outcomes

  1. Identify strategies for assessing pain in children.
  2. Discuss nonpharmacologic pain interventions for children.
