Summary of "Opioids are rarely prescribed for children with acute non-procedural pain in Italian emergency departments."

Pain is a major cause of admissions to pediatric emergency departments, but is often inappropriately managed (1). The findings of the Pain Practice in Italian Pediatric Emergency Departments on the appropriate use of paracetamol and ibuprofen have previously been reported (1,2). This multicentre, retrospective study evaluated the prescription of opioids given to patients up to the age of 14 with acute non-procedural pain by 18 Italian emergency departments between October 2014 and January 2015.
