Abstract
Pediatric pain is a significant medical problem that can affect children, their families, and healthcare professionals. It may arise from medical disorders such as surgical procedures, accidents, and other causes. The objective of this study was to examine the current literature on advancements in pediatric pain treatment and investigate the responsibilities of healthcare professionals and families in the management of pediatric pain. The researchers conducted a comprehensive search using prominent research engines such as Google Scholar, Science Direct, and PubMed. The researchers in this study conducted a comprehensive review of the relevant published literature and subsequently provided a concise summary of their findings. The findings of this study have substantiated that pediatric pain is a significant health issue that necessitates genuine and appropriate care. Nevertheless, the research has shown the emergence of many instruments that can be utilized to assess the degree of pain and effectively address it. Collectively, families play crucial roles in the administration of pediatric pain, which complements the responsibilities of medical personnel.
