Current Trends In Pain ManagementStreaming Video - 2011
A patient's ability to manage and mitigate pain is one of the most important indicators of his or her quality of life. Adopting the American Pain Society's view that pain is a vital sign much like pulse or blood pressure, this program provides nurses and health care assistants with an overview of recent developments in the field of pain management and an improved understanding of the anatomy and physiology of pain. Viewers learn about the physiology of pain transmission, the differences between nociceptive and neuropathic pain, the basics of assessing and analyzing pain in various forms, three major approaches to managing pain, and the World Health Organization's three-step ladder for cancer pain relief.
