Assessment and Management of Acute Pain

Speciality Classification
General Practice ( GP ) / Family Medicine

Although the relief of acute pain is the most common reason that patients seek emergency care research studies have documented that acute pain is frequently poorly managed in the ED setting. There is often a complete failure to provide any form of analgesia in a timely manner and even when analgesia is provided it is often ineffective due to either poor drug selection, inappropriate route of administration or inadequate dosing. This phenomenon is so significant that it has been given its own name – “Oligoanalgesia”. In the following modules we explore the principles for assessing and treating acute pain and will find that in most cases it does not require a significant amount of our time but only a thoughtful and informed approach to providing pain relief.

The course will specifically review:

1. Clinical approach to acute pain: Basic principles

2. Pharmacological approaches to severe pain

3. Oral analgesics

4. Analgesia for procedures
