Pain as a mutual experience for patients, nurses and families: a perspective from Valencia, Spain.

Abstract

The Spanish data collection was consistent with the overall study design and drew from three groups: laboring women, children and elderly patients. The Valencia data was amongst the most detailed, specific and complete in this international study. This is most likely due to the experienced nature of the Spanish research team. The study results revealed more commonalities than differences in all age groups with regard to pain identification and pain alleviation. Across age groups, pain was identified by study participants through observation and listening.
