  1. 1. Research plan<br />Oral Presentation<br />Helen Bickers<br />9909406<br />Methods of Research and Enquiry<br />
  2. 2. Research question <br />“What is an effective and efficient paediatric pain assessment tool that can be used in the pre-hospital environment?”<br />http://www.111emergency.co.nz/StJohnMerc.jpg<br />
  3. 3. WHY?<br />Pre-hospital patient care is my passion<br />Ensuring all patients leave my care in the best condition possible is my benchmark for personal performance<br />I recognised a gap in the care we give to the paediatric section of our population and wanted to identify WHY this happens<br />http://www.google.co.nz/imgres?imgurl=http://www.pediatricsafety.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/little-girl-and-nurse-in-ambulance.final.JPG<br />

  10. 10. ANALYSIS<br />Initially responses will be coded on the questionnaire then transferred to an Excel spreadsheet<br />Data will be applied to a frequency polygon chart to allow trends to be highlighted in a visual way<br />www.radicalacademy.com/statistics3.htm<br />
  11. 11. ANALYSIS<br />Highlight specific barriers to effective paediatric pain assessment<br />Analysis of these issues may in turn help identify correctable issues<br />Is there a preferred paediatric pain assessment tool highlighted?<br />Did the “at the coal face” practitioners identify with one particular tool?<br />www1.us.elsevierhealth.com<br />
  12. 12. Implications for practice<br />Identification of barriers to paediatric patient assessment<br />Identification of an efficient and effective pain assessment tool<br />Integration of these findings into the training of all pre-hospital care practitioners<br />http://brgov.com/dept/ems/Images/Training.JPG<br />
  13. 13. Bottom line...<br />Identifying the barriers and finding a<br />tool to facilitate the assessment of<br />pain correctly allows the appropriate<br />management to be undertaken<br />We need to ensure that our paediatric patients receive the best possible assessment and management when in our care<br />http://www.emtcatalog.com/images/50504.jpg<br />
