Pain management is one of the global burdens nowadays. Especially pain management in children that needs a total concern. Regarding its difficulty to approach children with pain, adequate pain assessment also takes place as the first goal in pain control. As we have known, pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek medical treatment. Pain management takes place in a hospital and out-of-hospital environment, especially for chronic pain. Pediatric patients with pain need a total evaluation as they sometimes difficult to deliver information regarding their symptoms. For that reason, we need someone that can stand by besides the patients to observe their changes in habit. At this point, nurses act to ensure all treatment has been delivered and to advocate patients/ patient’s families that the pain has been managed appropriately.
