Abstract

This study investigated the use of, and reasoning by, experienced nurses regarding non-pharmacological pain approaches to care for children in hospitals, with the aim of increasing our understanding, and hence optimizing, these approaches. Three focus-group interviews with 14 experienced nurses, were conducted in 2009. Our findings emphasized the role of non-pharmacological methods in building and maintaining cooperation with the child and in caring for the child by individualizing the use of non-pharmacological methods.
