Mark chats us through pain assessment treatment in the age ranges and how we can best manage the whole situation when a child is in pain.

Top 3 Points from this podcast:
  • Treat pain management in the child as a team approach wherever possible, engage with their caregivers for information.
  • Approach the pain in the psychological, emotional and physical management 
  • Use your JRCALC as a guide and don’t be afraid to give opioids in a measured approach
