Purpose of Activity:
To provide registered professional nurses with an in-depth discussion of burn pain management, including analgesics, topical medications, and the psychological aspects of burn pain.

Overview:
Despite advances in treatment of burn injuries and their consequent pain, wound care is the main source of the pain associated with burn injury. This two-part article explores burn pain and its treatment from a nursing perspective. Last month, Part 1 provided an overview of burn injury and addressed the wound care-related causes of burn pain, as well as its assessment and treatment. Part 2, presented here, provides a more in-depth discussion of pain management; topical medications and the psychological aspects of burn pain are also discussed.

Objectives:
After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to:
• summarize the characteristics of burn pain and the protocols commonly used to help relieve it.
• outline the adverse effects of medications used to treat burns and burn pain.
• plan the appropriate pain-relieving interventions for patients who have burn injuries
