Understanding Pain and the Nurse’s Role in Pain Management
Management of pain is a challenging task for any healthcare provider that strives to provide patient centered care. The perception of pain is never the same for anyone that experiences this sensation. This is why as healthcare providers we always consider our understanding, management, and treatment of pain on the distinct and specific needs of each individual. The goal of this course is to help nurses learn about pain and pain management options - with information on signs and symptoms, causes, classification, diagnosis and treatments.
