More than a decade has passed since mothers described their pain management interventions for their children’s postoperative tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy (T & A) care as “trial and error” (Gedaly-Duff & Ziebarth, 1994). The purpose of this commentary is to explore the state of the science of pediatric home pain management following T & A and to reflect upon directions for future research.
