Cook Children's Pain Management improves the quality of life for our pediatric patients by providing a balance between medicine and therapy.
Cook Children's is leading the way among children's hospitals by providing an innovative and comprehensive approach to managing pain in children and teens. Your child's care team includes experts in the evaluation and treatment of acute and chronic pain in infants, children and teens up to the age of 18. Our team's cooperative efforts span across many specialties as we work closely with our patients and families. This joint effort results in the best possible plan of care for your child.
We know that family is at the center of your child's whole world. Parents and family members are the source of a child's strength, courage and comfort. This is especially true when a child is injured, ill or physically or mentally challenged. At Cook Children's, our family centered care approach means that families become partners with us in their child's care. Family centered care at Cook Children's includes four core concepts:
- Respect and dignity
- Information sharing
These core concepts lay the groundwork for partnership with our Cook Children's Pain Management team. We are dedicated to working with you to address your child's pain and fear.
Cook Children's Pain Management is committed to giving families and our community the resources they need to manage their conditions. There are many educational and support opportunities available, including:
