This guidance was commissioned by the Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (APA). It is intended to be used by professionals involved in the acute care of children undergoing pain management after surgery or for painful medical procedures. It is designed to provide evidence-based information on the assessment of pain and the efficacy of pain management strategies, such that an informed plan of effective analgesia can be formulated that is appropriate for the patient and clinical setting.
The document includes advice on the assessment of pain, a summary of current evidence for the efficacy of analgesic strategies including evidence-based recommendations grouped according to named procedures, and a review of some of those most frequently recommended.
The guidance will be updated biennially.
