Identifying a premature infant's response to noxious stimuli and knowing when it is appropriate to intervene are major issues for the caregiver. After completing a pilot study, the staff of a 42-bed neonatal intensive care unit targeted improved pain assessment and management for further analysis. Using a series of Plan, Do, Check, and Act cycles they designed a stepwise set of interventions that resulted in the improved assessment and management of the neonate in pain.
