Pediatric Pain Management: Assessing Pediatric Pain

No pediatric patient should have to endure pain.  But the discomfort many children feel because of injury, illness, or medical intervention may be missed because of inadequate assessment techniques.  It is critical that healthcare providers be able to evaluate pain in children and provide the means to alleviate it.

The Pediatrics Pain Management series has been updated with a new look and feel.  This program is designed to give nurses the ability to assess pain in pediatrics patients of all ages and abilities.


After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Describe an evidence-based assessment of pediatric pain
  • Take a pain history
  • Explain the use of regular pain evaluations using objective criteria and/or standardized scales
  • Describe the use of the PQRST mnemonic and other standard methods to assess the child's pain
  • Use both non-verbal and self-reporting tools to measure a child's pain
  • Describe physiologic signs of pediatric pain
  • Utilize behavioral observation scales to assess pediatric pain
This program also includes workbooks that can be ordered separately.
