Parent’s management of their child’s postoperative pain

Parent’s management of their child’s postoperative pain
Parent’s management of their child’s postoperative pain
In spite of its benefits, day or minor surgery is not without complications; pain is a significant issue for some patients (Kotiniemi et al 1997, Grenier et al 1998). Having witnessed considerable variation in the discharge advice given to parents about pain control we were prompted to discover what evidence there is to suggest that parents can effectively manage their child’s postoperative pain at home following day or minor surgery. In this article we review the evidence and describe how review findings were used to inform practice.

Abstract

In spite of its benefits, day or minor surgery is not without complications; pain is a significant issue for some patients (Kotiniemi et al 1997, Grenier et al 1998). Having witnessed considerable variation in the discharge advice given to parents about pain control we were prompted to discover what evidence there is to suggest that parents can effectively manage their child’s postoperative pain at home following day or minor surgery. In this article we review the evidence and describe how review findings were used to inform practice.
