This chapter first focuses on an overview of the similar elements to approaches of chronic pain, acute pain, and palliative care, concluding with a description of the ideal multidisciplinary pain management approach (MPMA). The chapter then proceeds to review the specific organization and operations of acute pain and chronic pain services, respectively. Finally, research about the expectation of parents when they enter a clinic and importance of accommodating and promoting positive expectations is presented. The patient flow process in acute pain differs from the chronic pain model and is described. The emphasis remains on consistent clear communication among providers and between providers and patient/family.
