It Doesn't Have to Hurt

Our Work

Our innovative knowledge translation activities bring together researchers, parents, digital media experts, and other stakeholders to develop, implement, and evaluate branded social media campaigns to bring research to parents.

We also conduct original grant-funded research on a range of topics in children’s pain management, with a focus on developmental, psychological, and family factors.
