Postoperative pain management aims to minimise patient discomfort, facilitate early mobilisation and functional recovery, and prevent acute pain developing into chronic pain.
Mental health can affect a patients recovery and psychological vulnerability is predictive of severe postoperative pain. Education before surgery reduces anxiety and improves patient satisfaction.
The choice of analgesia depends on the type of surgery the patient is having. Using procedure-specific pain guidelines within an enhanced rehabilitation program is recommended.
