Abstract

The aim of this guideline is to improve the way in which health professionals recognise and assess pain in children. It is hoped that the guideline will also provide useful strategies for parents and for children during their experiences of health care. For the purposes of the guideline, the term child/children refers to every person below the age of 19 years.
