Abstract

Treating acute pain in the paediatric population poses challenges which include the lack of high levels of evidence and a universal pain measuring tool, contributing to the undertreatment of pain. A multimodal approach of topical and systemic analgesia, comfort measures and parental involvement remains the mainstay of pain management.
