Abstract/Description

This project utilized current research on the effects of pain in the neonate, determined minimally invasive interventions as a solution to this suggested problem using evidence to support these interventions, identified a theoretical framework to guide the research, and proposed a hospital policy to incorporate into clinical practice. The purpose of this project was to research evidence based topics in order to integrate the best evidence available, along with nursing expertise, in order to maintain and continue providing quality care in the clinical area to patients. Pain is an unpleasant feeling that can contribute to many adverse effects throughout the lifecycle. It is both an obligation and duty of clinical nurses to be able to accurately assess a patient's pain and to provide maximal relief. Despite all of the current evidence, infant pain is still reported to be underestimated and under treated. Due to this finding, the aim for this project was to provide minimally invasive interventions that have proven to be statistically significant, such as non-nutritive sucking and oral glucose, to incorporate into clinical practice to address pain in the neonate.
