The Psychology of Burn Pain: What Nurses Need to Know

The June issue of AJN includes the second part of a two-part article on burn pain (here’s the first part; for the best versions of both parts, click on “article as PDF”). Addressing the psychological component of this pain is key to the patient’s recovery. Below are some tips from Frank Costello, a clinical nurse specialist on a burn unit at Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City, who spoke with editor-in-chief Diana Mason. (A podcast of the full interview with Costello can be found here.)
