  • A high standard of acute postoperative pain control is achievable, using a comprehensive multimodal approach, resulting in improved patient outcomes. Unfortunately, for the majority of surgical patients, this is not achieved, with significant negative consequences. The purpose of this review is to identify the barriers that exist to achieving optimal postoperative pain control. Current approaches to pain management will be discussed. Solutions to lower these barriers will be suggested.
