Pain Discussion

Managing pain is a common goal when working in the Healthcare setting. Pain Management is an area that nurses and doctors as well as other healthcare professionals can receive specialized training and certification. In our Case Study this week the woman talks about the pain she experienced after knee replacement surgery. I would like you to participate in two activities to familiarize yourself with the concepts and terms related to pain.

On a PC keyboard you can hit the PrintScreen button. This takes a copy of the screen they are viewing. Next, open a word document and right-click on the document and select paste. The copied screen will be visible on the Word doc. Save the document.

On a MAC keyboard you hit Command, Shift, and 4, then highlight the section you want to take a picture then release keys and picture will be on Desktop. Then you can insert or attach the screenshot into the Canvas message.
