 The purpose of this assignment is to evaluate effective non-pharmacological and psychological pain management techniques. 

 Matthew,  age 13, and his mothers have arrived in the pediatric unit for  evaluation of his chronic pain related to cancer. Matthew is a bright,  articulate young man who appears pale, anxious, and extremely  uncomfortable. He is still rating his pain at a 10 (on a scale of 1 to  10) 20 minutes after receiving a dose of morphine sulfate IV, which  should have provided quick and effective relief. The primary health care  provider is ordering a pain consult. Until the pain management team  arrives, Matthew’s nurse asks you to suggest some non-pharmacological or  psychological pain management techniques for Matthew. You work with  Matthew on three different techniques and give him and his mothers an  educational brochure that describes each of the techniques, explains how  to do the techniques, and explains why the techniques are beneficial. 

 make the  patient education brochure you have just given to Matthew and his  mothers. Complete a literature search and choose three age-appropriate,  non-pharmacological or psychological pain management techniques you  believe would be of greatest benefit for Matthew. Give a thorough  description of each technique, explain how to do each technique, and  explain why each technique is beneficial. As with all written patient  education material, remember to consider the reading level of your  patient audience and evaluate your brochure for readability. Include the Readability Index Score at the bottom of your brochure. 

Please be original do not just copy and  paste from the internet
