The paediatric population is at risk of inadequate pain management, with age-related factors affecting pain management in children. This presented study discusses the complexities of measuring paediatric pain, reviews the most well-known pain assessment scales, and emphasizes the importance of family nvolvement in situations where children are asked to self-report their experiences. Current ecommendations for treatment of pain in children are critically reviewed.
