|Overview of Pain Management|
This module contains practical advice about managing pain that will build upon the Essential Pain Management workshop which is part of the Year 4 anaesthetic attachment.
The module covers numerous aspects of pain management so can be looked at 'section by section' or 'as a whole' depending on time constraints.
It is expected that the student should be able to complete:
- By the end of Year 4, the "student cases" in the acute pain, the chronic non-cancer pain and the cancer pain sections.
- By the end of Year 6, the Safe Practice clinical reasoning examples (in Safe Opioid Prescribing).
After you have worked your way through this resource, you should be able to :
- Recognise that a person has pain
- Assess the pain
- Treat by using both non-drug and drug modalities appropriately
