Pain is one of the most frequent clinical complaint in daily, ambulatory and hospital practice. Regardless of its cause, it remains undervalued and, as a consequence, without adequate management, resulting in poor control, thus impairing a physical and social rehabilitation proposal. This study aimed at presenting a pain control program and at spreading the real advantages of its implementation.


This is a descriptive study with experience report of a national reference orthopedic surgical hospital exclusively assisting Single Health System patients.


This experience and its results encourage the maintenance of the Pain Control Policy and contribute to reference to other health institutions the benefits of implementing similar programs and policies.

Keywords : Fifth vital sign; Indicators; Pain control program.
