      Honestly, I have worked with children with life-threatening/limiting conditions for many years.
      The only tool that I have used (sometimes) is the visual pain scale- although not recently.

      I am excited about all the tools that are available, although I think that “time”-as always- might be a challenge. Using “Play therapy” or combined meetings as an assessment strategy often requires “time”. As has often been said, one gets into the “life-saving” zone,and can easily forget that we should address the needs of the whole patient.

      Still, considering all the stumbling blocks I would like to implement (or try to) at least one tool in our unit. I am quite interested in the Eland Colour tool and the Record keeping tool. I think both of these could help with having more insight into the patient (and family) needs.
