Article needs reformatting[edit]

This article needs to be restructured, as the current organization of the page is very confusing and difficult to follow, with lots of extraneous information. Many of the details included do not seem to be relevant to children in particular, but rather to pain in general.Rosguill (talk) 23:28, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

The sources that support the content in this article specifically address pain in children. If you see a statement about pain in this article, you can assume the statement is about pain in children and infants. It was impractical to use "pain in children" every time the word "pain" appears.

Editing spring 2018[edit]

Hi, I will be editing this article over the course of the next month as part of my college writing class! I will focus on restructuring the article and adding in information related to prescription opioids for treatment in children.Jennac1117 (talk) 17:56, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Welcome and thank you for all the improvements that you have made so far. Best Regards, Barbara (WVS)   01:07, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Key image[edit]

Does it really add anything of value to the article to have an image of a child crying in the infobox? Natureium (talk) 17:55, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

I suppose it is simply an illustration. I personally think it is valuable or else I wouldn't have included it. I can't imagine another image to insert since any image of a child in pain is probably not appropriate either. Best Regards, Barbara (WVS)   00:35, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Students fall 2018[edit]

Hello! My group of 4 will be working on sections of the article for the next few weeks. I will be expanding the acute pain treatment section under pharmacotherapy. Lara Barsoumian will be working on the chronic pain treatment section under pharmacotherapy. Dahlia Morovati will be working on pharmacotherapy abuse. Henry Huang will be expanding on neuropathic pain. I plan to include information on managing pain after dental procedures or surgeries. Our sources will include guidelines and journal reviews focused on pediatric pain management. Jessicali cp133 (talk) 19:35, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Hello all! I (Thomas Leung) will be expanding the "Cancer pain". My classmate Lauren Cline will be working on the non-pharm pain management section. Sally Pham will be updating the contraindications and side effects section. Min Ku will be working on the after treatment and traumatic measure section. We will be updating this article for the next 7 weeks. We plan to reorganize the section to make it more streamlined and easier to read. In particular, we want to include information regarding the various options for pain management, ranging from non-pharmacological treatments to opiates. We will to draw upon guidelines and articles focusing on pediatric cancer pain management to expand this article. We are open to all suggestions! ThomasLeung1 (talk) 23:45, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Please make sure you have done the training, and are grounded in what kinds of sources are OK (WP:MEDRS) and how to format citations (WP:MEDHOW) and the style we use (WP:MEDMOS). And please don't be discouraged if your initial contributions are not OK. Jytdog (talk) 02:18, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
I went through and took out bad-example things. Please review the existing content carefully - this needs significant revision based on recent, high quality sources. You picked a page that really needs care! Jytdog (talk) 02:56, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
