Clinical Interest for Patients
As a member of the Acute Pain Service team, I provide acute pain management for infants, children and adolescents. Most of the population I serve is post-operative patients with epidurals, regional blocks, IV Patient Controlled or Nurse Controlled Analgesia.
Using the biopsychosocial model of pain and multimodal therapy I strive to provide the best acute pain management care to my patients with the minimum side effects. After surgery or injury it is often not possible to get pain scores down to zero, but I will strive to work with my patients, families and other team members to get the pain under control so the patient can do the activities they need to do to get better.
