SELLAN SOTO, Mª Carmen; DIAZ MARTINEZ, Mª Luisa  y  VAZQUEZ SELLAN, Antonio. Pain assessment and implementation of nursing therapeutic interventions in neonatal and pediatric patients, in welfare hospital contexts . Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2012, vol.28, n.2, pp.144-155. ISSN 0864-0319.

Pain is a reality, a subjective experience culturally built and socio-historically determined from the earliest childhood. With regard to the care provided to children and adolescents, a challenge of a present validity is the pain relief, both acute and chronic. Approaches for treatment have been changing and improving as knowledge increased so we have a wide variety of therapeutic interventions both pharmacological and non-pharmacological. The objective of this study is to demonstrate how to carry out the assessment of pain in certain techniques, procedures and pathological processes and as well as the knowledge on therapeutic interventions nursing for pain relief and its level of application in welfare hospital contexts. In this article exclusively is shown the results related to pain assessment. It may be concluded that there are some pathological processes that were not pointed out the relevance of evaluating the pain, possibly is not a case of an inadequate assessment of pain but the reason for admission in the studied units. With regard to techniques and procedures they pointed in the same direction, although it is believed important to look into the causes underlying those cases where the procedure of the pain of the pediatric patient is not valued at any moment.
