ABSTRACT:
Adequate pain management is a compelling and universal requirement in health care. Despite considerable advancements, the adverse physiological and psychological implications of unmanaged pain remain substantially unresolved. Ineffective pain management can lead to a marked decrease in desirable clinical and psychological outcomes and patients’ overall quality of life. Effective management of acute pain results in improved patient outcomes and increased patient satisfaction. Although research and advanced treatments in improved practice protocols have documented progressive improvements in management of acute and postoperative pain, little awareness of the effectiveness of best practices persists. Improved interventions can enhance patients’ attitudes to and perceptions of pain. What a patient believes and understands about pain is critical in influencing the patient’s reaction to the pain therapy provided. Use of interdisciplinary pain teams can lead to improvements in patients’ pain management, pain education, outcomes, and satisfaction.
