I am doing an evidence-based practice project in my PICU in the hope that we can improve our pain assessment and documentation. We currently use the CRIES, PEPPS, FACES and Numeric Rating Scale, depending on the age of the child. Documentation is terrible, and I suspect it is because we have too many scales & they are not appropriate for our population. Has anyone done this type of project? Who is using the FLACC scale? In what age group & population? What has anyone used for an assessment of nurses' knowledge and attitude concerning pain assessment? We need to do pre- and post-implementation assessments to see if we have made a significant improvement by replacing our current scales with the FLACC. Any advice you can give me would be most appreciated!
