Making a difference for kids in pain

Understanding stakeholders needs for successful knowledge mobilization in children’s pain

Activities to make a difference in children’s pain work best when there are a variety of people participating in them, including health professionals, researchers, and patient/family partners; however, more information is needed about how to support these different people when participating in activities to improve children’s pain management.

The goal of this research study is to understand what health professionals, researchers, and patient/family partners each believe to be most important when partaking in activities to make a difference in children’s pain.
