ABSTRACT:
Pain, stress and anxiety related to diseases and procedures have been an all-time challenge for health professionals, parents, and specially children. Guided imagery has been found to be useful in reducing such conditions, and may be of clinical value in a multidisciplinary treatment program. The basic principles of guided imagery are reviewed, as well as studies exploring basic mechanisms of guided imagery and clinical efficacy. Conditions commonly treated in the pediatric pain clinic, including abdominal pain, sickle cell anaemia pain, as well as acute injury pain studies are reviewed and discussed. A. guided imagery can be an effective adjuvant in the care of pediatric patients with painful conditions, Further studies, including randomized controlled trials, as well as trials of comparative effectiveness are needed.
KEYWORDS:
Guided imagery, pediatric pain, effectiveness.
