Series Overview:

The experience of pain is at the same time universal yet unique to every individual. It is a multifaceted subjective experience, so it can be challenging to assess and manage. This is especially true in the pediatric patient population, some of who are not yet verbal.

It is critical that healthcare providers be able to evaluate pain in children and provide the means to alleviate it.
