Assessing Children’s pain

This educational handout for parents provides information on age appropriate pain intensity tools used at Seattle Children’s. This handout contains a range of pain assessment scales for infants to adolescents. While the primary audience is patients and families, it can also be a bedside resource for staff when assessing pain intensity in practice.
