We need to talk about psychological pain

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The author responds to Dr. Shattell's suggestion (Issues in Mental Health Nursing, 30(5), 2009) that it may be time to add psychic pain to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations' pain management standard. Before we do so, some level of agreement is necessary on issues concerning terminology, measurement, and intervention. The author offers a definition of psychological pain as common ground for future research and development in clinical care.
