Title

Basic nursing management of pain a multi-method approach: an educational and clinical resource for the registered nurse

Abstract

Pain control is a vital component of patient care. Yet, the pace of emerging treatments and improvements in nursing interventions makes it almost impossible to stay abreast of the current modalities and interventions for pain management. The purpose of this synthesis is to present the reader with an educational and clinical resource on pain, which provides a precise overview of the various types of nursing treatment and intervention for pain, including methods of assessment and evaluation of the patient's response to therapy. Different modalitiesalong with nursing implications, are presented in the context in which they are most frequently utilized. The methodology used for this study is literature review and synthesis with compilation of resources useful for nurses in the understanding of pain management. This synthesis will assist nurses in increasing their basic knowledge of pain therapy in order to competently manage pain, educate fellow health providers about the subject, and provide the basic information needed to begin professional research on pain management. Implications for research augmentation, nursing education, and clinical practice are identified.
