Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Neonatal Circumcision Mobile App
The Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Neonatal Circumcision 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 Neonatal Circumcision. Neonatal circumcision is considered separately from circumcision in older children due to differences in clinical practice and evidence base. Premature neonates can experience pain and therefore require good perioperative analgesia for surgical interventions. Many circumcisions are done in the awake neonate in the first few hours or days of life; this is reflected in the literature as studies have generally evaluated pain during the procedure. A GoCanvas account can be specified as being HIPAA compliant.
