Developmental Care CNE Module 20 - Pain Assessment and Nonpharmacologic Management

Developmental Care CNE Module

Module 20: Pain Assessment and Nonpharmacologic Management 1.5 CNE contact hours

 

Enhance your developmental care studies with this online CNE learning module, which serves as a supplement to the Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants: A Guide for Health Professionals, second edition. Developed by the editors and authors of Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants: A Guide for Health Professionals, second edition, this module reinforces the most relevant and important aspects of developmental care.

If you are a nurse seeking to obtain the CNE contact hours, you should have read or studied the relevant portions of Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants, participated in another related course of study in developmental care, or draw upon your professional experience. Some learners may choose to use this learning module as a self-assessment tool. This self-study module includes a PDF with a brief written overview of one aspect of developmental care, a list of the related developmental care standards, several "points to remember," recommended supplemental readings, one or more reflective exercises, and one or more case studies. The learner must complete a post-test and an evaluation in order to receive the designated contact hours. This module is intended for nurses and occupational, physical, respiratory, and speech therapists.

This module is an aid and does not include an in-depth description of the subject matter. Instead, serves as a study guide that augments and builds on what learners are reading and studying or upon their professional experiences in developmental care as a means to promote understanding and retention.

Module Summary
Pain is assessed and managed inadequately in a large proportion of neonates despite the ready availability of assessment instruments and safe and effective pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic interventions. Researchers found that infants born between 24 and 42 weeks' gestation experienced on average a mean of 98 painful procedures during their first 14 days of admission, with one neonate having 364 painful procedures. In addition, substantial numbers of failed attempts at procedures dramatically increase the number of painful procedures to which neonates are subjected. Many of the procedures commonly performed on neonates cause moderate-to-severe pain (average pain scores of 5 on a 10-point scale), but few infants received any pharmacologic or nonpharmacologic pain management.
Evidence suggests that the cumulative effects of repeated painful medical procedures on the developing brain may be of significant biological and clinical importance. This chapter summarizes and recommends pain assessment and nonpharmacologic pain management practices based on the best evidence for the nursing care of hospitalized neonates.
