The Pain Resource Unit is a transverse and multidisciplinary unit. It cooperates with the various HUDERF care teams on all matters relating to pain management (identification, prevention, relief).
Our young patients may experience various kinds of pain to which we should pay close attention to provide the best possible support:
- acute pain (following a trauma or illness, for example)
- pain associated with the treatment (for example when treating a wound or venipuncture).
- post-operative pain
- chronic pain (persistent pain lasting several months, sometimes associated with a chronic disease or situations of handicap)
