Abstract

Implications for practice and research

▪ Healthcare professionals need to value the role children can play in the management of their pain.

▪ Involving parents in the assessment of a child’s pain will help identify when a child appears to be concealing their pain.

▪ In order for pain management in children to improve, there needs to be commitment at ward and organisational level.
