      • As a nurse for the past 44+ years I believe nurses have a unique role in the management of pain; whether that pain be acute, chronic, cancer or other etiology. We spend time with the patient and assess the whole patient. We want to know not only the physical sensation of pain but how it affects sleep, coping, rest, activity, socialization etc. I have developed a consulting business around chronic pain coping skills. I help patients to find non pharmacologic strategies, techniques and interventions to reduce their perception of pain, help them sleep better, rest better, create a therapeutic environment in their home that will support their strategies. I do not tell them to learn to live with the pain; I teach them how to live with their pain with the best quality of life that they can imagine. I meet them where they are in their journey and help them find a new path to increased understanding and wellness. I believe this is what nurses do best for persons in pain – Non judgmental, supportive teaching.
