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
