All disciplines have input into formulating a management plan for each person's particular needs. She has a background in clinical anaesthesia and is an honorary senior lecturer in Department of Pharmacology at the University of Melbourne. After the initial assessment, a treatment plan will be developed according to the patient's individual needs. This might involve medical input e.

Some patients may also be offered appointments with other medical specialists within the clinic i. Please note that the length of treatment that patients may receive at the clinic is determined by individual needs and progress. The medical team as part of the multidisciplinary team include pain specialists with backgrounds in Anaesthesia, Rehabilitation Medicine, Dentistry, Addiction Medicine, and Psychiatry. Medical therapies offered include Pharmacotherapy, Interventional Procedures, and Education. The role of a physiotherapist is to look at how pain is affecting a patient's physical condition and level of daily activity.

This information will then be used to formulate an appropriate physiotherapy treatment plan. This may include:. The role of a psychologist in an assessment is to look at the way persistent pain has affected a patient's life. Changes in a person's self esteem is also common. The role of the clinical nurse consultant primarily involves coordination of patient care and patient education. All patients referred to the BWCPM are triaged by the nurse consultant and appointments are organized according to the information provided at the time of referral.

The nursing staff monitor the patients' progress while attending the centre and ensure that all aspects of the management plan are implemented, the outcome is reviewed on a regular basis, and changes are made to the plan in accordance to patient response.

Assessment and Management of Pain (Third Edition)

It explains the ethical aspects of pain management and makes us think about why and how we should manage patients' pain, and what our rights and duties are in pain management. The book takes us from an explanation of pain, through pain assessment, pharmacology and management, and informs us how to plan for pain management, rather than only focussing on reactive pain control. It also looks at pain from the patient's perspective and teaches us how to assess pain using a variety of recognised tools I will use this book again and again, and would recommend it to fellow students who are placed on wards where pain management and planning is required.

It considers: Different pain types including acute, chronic and palliativeAssessing painTreatment and pharmacology of pain controlChallenging situations and dilemmasCommunicating with patients in painEthical and legal aspects of treating pain The book also considers the experience of pain from the patients' perspective, to help healthcare students better understand the needs of patients who are in pain and how they can improve the care they give. Neither the type nor the number of QI interventions predicts successful change in health care performance.

Education, prompts, computerized decision support systems, feedback including peer comparisons, formulary restrictions, pharmacy and therapeutic guidelines, opinion leaders, academic detailing, clinical pathways, case management, algorithms, standard orders, incentives, and regulation policies and preauthorization are all encouraged.

Use of multiple interventions was critical to success in a multicenter back pain QI initiative sponsored by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. Barriers to the implementation of pain QI goals must be identified and addressed to avoid impasses. The most common barriers in multicenter pain QI projects 76 - 78 were lack of administrative support and staff resources to work on QI and collect data, reliance on guidelines distribution in lieu of direct staff contact, staff turnover, and resistance to change.

Solutions to these barriers include the identification and use of change agents at the local level and collaborations between organizations or across health care systems. Integrating new knowledge and behaviors into day-to-day pain management practice is a challenging but essential process. Work is needed to learn whether new approaches bring improvements in the quality of pain management.

Well-designed observational and experimental studies are needed to further develop and test valid and reliable measures of pain management quality and outcomes. This will necessitate collaboration among clinicians, accrediting bodies, researchers, and policymakers. These efforts are in their infancy; however, the direction is clear. Correspondence: Debra B.
