Collaborative quality improvement to manage pain in acute care hospitals

Griesser, Anne-Claude
Published in Pain medicine. 2011, vol. 12, no. 1, p. 138-47
Abstract Collaborative quality improvement programs have been successfully used to manage chronic diseases in adults and acute lung complications in premature infants. Their effectiveness to improve pain management in acute care hospitals is currently unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a collaborative quality improvement program implemented at hospital level could improve pain management and overall pain relief.
