Managing neonatal pain while rationalising the use of morphine using a structured systematic approach
A structured, systematic approach to assess and manage ongoing pain in preterm ventilated infants in a tertiary neonatal unit was successfully implemented. In order to assess efficacy of the pain management project, a retrospective observational study analysing data pre- and post-implementation was performed. The study enabled development of practical guidance for optimising the use of morphine in this group of infants.
