Pain management; there are several different options for pain management but a lot of patients need it and providers do not have the resources or ability to provide it. If your agency does not have pharmaceuticals then look for other options, there are still OTC meds and even just positioning or splinting will provide comfort. Pain management is something all providers should at least have an idea on what to provide, how much, and when for every call. Remember each patient is different and men and women perceive pain differently so treat accordingly starting with a thorough assessment and asking questions will direct your path to go down, or at least provide a good turnover to other providers if you are not transporting.

I have provided a couple of Pain-Face scales, you can print and put into your medic bag.
