Drs. Dorsett, Jarvis and Escajeda join the Pediatric EMS Podcast crossover episode to discuss pain management
Safely and effectively managing pain in our pediatric patients is a primary responsibility for our EMS clinicians. Medical directors must be able to identify gaps in pediatric pain management and provide the necessary QA/QI to close those gaps.
In this special cross-post episode of Medic Mindset from the new pediatric podcast from NAEMSP: The Pediatric EMS Podcast, created by Joelle Donofrio-Odmann, DO, FAAP, FACEP, FAEMS; and Joseph Finney, MD; we focus on exactly that.
Drs. Maia Dorsett, Jeff Jarvis and Jeremiah Escajeda join in to offer their knowledge and critical appraisal of the evidence in order to identify and close the gaps in the management of pain in children.
