Preemie Pain Management Blog Post
Category: Content Development
Date: April 2016
This blog post was written for a client in the healthcare industry and covered past, current, and projected future methods of pain assessment and treatment for premature children in the NICU. This content required research into the history of neonatal pain relief policies. I read several medical studies to aid in accurate content development, including the work of notable neonatologist Kanwaljeet Anand, who pioneered medical trials to prove that premature children deserved to be administered pain relief. Preemie pain management has always been a difficult subject, as certain medications are too dangerous for underdeveloped children to handle. Unfortunately, these children must often undergone uncomfortable, unnerving, or even extremely painful procedures in order to save their lives and help them recover from early birth. Doctors are trying to find answers to preemie pain management that avoid harming their patients or make them suffer through surgeries and therapies with no pain relief.
My preemie pain blog post was published on their blog on April 27th, 2016, and was shared to various social media sites. It received an especially enthusiastic response from their target audience on LinkedIn- neonatal professionals in the medical field.
