Benchmarks for the Prevention and Management of Pain
- Department of Health
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
'Essence of Care' was first introduced in 2001, designed to support and address the fundamentals of care which are still at the heart of its 12 benchmarks. 'Essence of Care' is ideal for frontline staff in health and social care settings.
For the purpose of these benchmarks, pain management is defined as: any intervention designed to prevent or alleviate pain and/or its impact, such that quality of life and ability to function are optimised.
'Essence of Care 2010 - Benchmarks for the Prevention and Management of Pain' provides guidance to ensure that people experience individualised, timely and supportive care that anticipates, recognises, and manages pain in order to optimise function and quality of life.
This title must be read in conjunction with 'How to Use Essence of Care 2010' (please see below). It should also be noted that all the benchmarks are interrelated.
'Essence of Care 2010 - Benchmarks for the Fundamental Aspects of Care' which contains all 12 benchmarks and 'How to Use Essence of Care 2010' is also available to purchase (please see below).
