Across healthcare provision, pain is the most frequent trigger for patients to make contact. Recent research shows pain to be a distinct disorder, with physical, emotional, and cognitive components. Pain is encountered during every shift with regular calls for chest pain, back pain, abdominal pain, child birth and traumatic injury.
This guide has been developed through the enthusiasm of a group of front-line clinicians at the East of England Ambulance Service who want to see practice enhanced. It explores the complexity of pain in physical, emotional and cognitive contexts and how this can be
managed. It is aimed at operational staff at all levels to provoke discussion, to introduce themes and practices that may be new to some and ultimately to increase the awareness and confidence of staff when managing the large number of patients encountered who are in pain.
