Pain Management in Nursing
Free Nursing CEUs / Pain Management
In this course, you will learn about pain and symptom management. Managing pain within healthcare settings is a challenge and must take into consideration patient-centered preferences, treatment goals, as well as guidelines and laws from governing bodies. You will learn about how opioids were the first line of defense against pain for many years, but how the mindset has been required to change with the onset of the opioid crisis.
