You have come to the end of this short course – well done.

You have learned about the various aspects of the pain management framework that has been developed over a number of years involving the views of over 60 practitioners and has been shaped by the experiences of children and parents following surgery. The result is a holistic body of work that now needs to be used to engage with best practice and facilitate and deliver effective pain management for children.

So with your new knowledge of the framework, consider what one thing would need to change where you are currently working, or have worked, to enable the key elements of the framework to be delivered. What role could you play in that change and who would support you to deliver it?
