Acute Pain Service
The Acute Pain Service (APS) consists of consultant anaesthetists, anaesthetic registrars and pain nurse specialists. The service provides pain management with the use of pain modalities such as patient controlled analgesia or epidurals for post-operative patients and those whose pain is not well managed on basic analgesics.
The service provides specialist information, education and training to children, families and members of the multi-disciplinary team with regard to all aspects of pain management, with the pain nurse specialists being responsible for nursing practice/development and education.
The team also works in close collaboration with the complex and palliative care team for both in and out patients.
