Activity 11.9: Critical thinking, reflective practice

Reflect on an episode in practice where pain was effectively managed and consider:

  • How the MDT was involved in the pain management

You may recall just seeing the doctor and the nursing staff managing the patient’s pain however what you might not realise is that the medical staff may be using a set algorithm for managing someone’s pain (especially post-operative pain) or they may have consulted with a pain specialist team member.
