To prevent suffering for children and their families, nurses and other healthcare professionals must apply the most up-to-date techniques of pain assessment and management to all children they care for, especially from the time a child receives a diagnosis of a potentially life-threatening illness through his or her survival or death. By application of an integrated treatment plan that is based on the developmental level of the individual child, involves his or her family, and uses both pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions, optimal pain control is possible.
