Pain - Introduction - Archived

“Pain is whatever the patient says it is”

  • It is subjective and cannot be properly diagnosed or evaluated using any objective means.
  • The child and family usually interpret it as being the result of tissue damage.
  • It is not, in reality necessarily associated with tissue damage.
  • It occurs independently of the child’s capacity to express it.
