Providing pain-relieving options for pediatric patients undergoing specimen-collection procedures is a priority as poor health care experiences can lead to reduced pain tolerance and avoidance of health care as an adult. During this session, different pain-relieving techniques will be reviewed and critically evaluated for efficacy. Solutions to improve workflows and processes in the outpatient and inpatient settings will be presented where the goal is to improve the overall experience and pain-relief utilization rates for pediatric patients undergoing invasive procedures.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- List age-appropriate pain-relieving options for pediatric patients.
- Evaluate the efficacy of pain-relieving options for pediatric patients.
- List the barriers and approaches to increasing the utilization of pain-relieving options for pediatric patients undergoing invasive procedures.
This program is appropriate for clinicians, pathologists, medical technologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other allied health staff.
