When a variance occurs on the pathway: 1. date of variance is recorded by the nurse/doctor. 2. what variance occurred, such as pain or facilities leaflet not given. 3. why the variance occurred. This can usually fall into two types of variance: (a) Unavoidable variance, such as pain. This type of variance is unavoidable if the patient is on the correct dose of analgesia and this is being delivered effectively. (b) Avoidable variance such as facilities leaflet not given because there was not any available or pain due to analgesics not prescribed.
