Reply To: Pain Scoring – are we all doing this regularly?

Sophie Ponter

I see different uptakes depending on where I Locum – A lot of places have the sheets on the walls but I rarely see them used or advocated for by vets or nurses. As a vet I’m aware I should definitely be encouraging their use more frequently. I’d be interested to learn what vets and nurses are doing in different spheres of practice (and any tips for increasing use) as a lot of my work is in under-nursed mixed practice which can be very chaotic and not always conducive to good nursing care and pain assessment!

I hadn’t considered using them for lameness cases – I love dealing with my golden oldies and all their comorbidities in particular so I will definitely be taking this forward.
