Children and adolescents often experience pain or stress during hospital stays, and insufficiently treated pain results in anxiety and insomnia, which in turn increases their sensitivity to pain. Caregivers' responsibilities for pain range from pain assessment to the treatment and counseling of children and their caregivers. This work aims to address the possibilities arising from touch in connection with pain and stress reduction. In the context of child and adolescent care, touch is omnipresent, but the possibility to reduce pain or stress by means of touch is not used too well in the opinion of the author. The aim of the work is to understand the role of caregiver touch in child and adolescent care and how to sensitize them for the fact that touch can help to reduce pain and stress. Likewise, it should be recorded which possibilities the care concept Basale Stimulation® offers from the nursing point of view. The present work follows a qualitative research approach and collects the data through five guideline-based expert interviews with qualified caregivers of child and adolescent care. The evaluation is based on the summary content analysis according to Mayring. The caregivers surveyed differentiate between medical and non-medical measures for pain and stress reduction. According to the caregivers surveyed, the low time required, the assured effect and the greater experience with this form of treatment speak in favor of the medication. In summary, caregivers see it as a suitable measure for pain and stress reduction and report positive experiences with offers of Basale Stimulation®. Above all, they experience lack of time and high organizational effort as a hindrance in the increased implementation of touch in their day-to-day care. The presence of the parents, who, after appropriate instruction and training, make a significant contribution to the pain and stress reduction in their child, has a favorable effect on the use of touch offers.
