Abstract

Adequate pain control for mothers during the laboring and postpartum period is essential in producing positive outcomes in the clinical setting. By utilizing non-pharmacological methods, it reduces the risks associated with the use of opioids and other pharmacological methods while also being a cost-effective, low maintenance, and accessible resource. The purpose of this research is to find ways that effectively implement non-pharmacological pain management methods into the clinical setting. By providing education to both staff and patients on the Labor and Delivery unit, the intended outcome is to broaden knowledge on the availability of these resources and to encourage their use. Education to the staff will provided via educational poster or presentation that informs them of the benefits of non-pharmacological pain control and ways to appropriately implement them into their practice. Education and implementation for patients will include a comfort menu in their hospital room that informs them of non-pharmacological pain management options available to them and what they can ask for.
