| February 20, 2015
Short Paper: Are pain and discomfort one and the same? Instructions Often times the terms “pain” and “discomfort” are used interchangeably. Write a four page paper which includes a cover page (page 1), your response to the questions below (pages 2 & 3), and a reference page (page 4): Since pain is now considered the fifth vital sign, can the terms truly be used interchangeably or should they be viewed as distinct patient needs? Does each one merit as aggressive treatment as the other? What might a patient be experiencing when discomfort is reported rather than pain? How does the registered nurse address physical, psycho/social/spiritual, and environmental needs when developing patient centered plans of care to treat pain and discomfort?
