Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Lower Limb Surgery Mobile App
The Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Lower Limb 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 Lower Limb Surgery. The surgery covered in this section ranges from relatively minor single site orthopaedic surgery to more major procedures such as multiple level osteotomies. The population of patients requiring femoral and pelvic osteotomies includes those suffering from cerebral palsy; pain in this population can also precipitate painful muscle spasm requiring specific management with benzodiazepines. A GoCanvas account can be specified as being HIPAA compliant.
