Answer

Answer

Promptly switching intravenous acetaminophen to oral acetaminophen is possible in patients with severe pain outbreaks if certain steps have been taken, including the establishment of a local consensus process, presentation of a short educational program, display of posters in all nurses' offices, and feedback regarding the practice 6 months after implementation of guidelines.
