Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Subumbilical Surgery Mobile App
The Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Subumbilical Surgery mobile app is intended to be used by professionals involved in the acute care of children undergoing pain management after surgery or for painful medical procedures.
How does it work?
It is designed to provide evidence-based information on the assessment of pain and the efficacy of pain management strategies. The app includes advice on the assessment of pain including evidence levels and grade of recommendation specific to Subumbilical Surgery. This category has been included because many studies have used a combination of different surgical procedures from the subumbilical area as the operative model e.g. repair of inguinal hernia, orchidopexy, circumcision, phimosis, hypospadias, hydrocoele, vesico-ureteric reflux. Postoperative pain is unlikely to be equivalent following each of these different procedures (Ho and Keneally 2000), but they are not uniformly distributed between studies and the numbers of individual procedures in each study are often low, thereby making it impractical to look at each procedure in isolation. A GoCanvas account can be specified as being HIPAA compliant.
