WCHRI public lecture on children's pain
Pain can affect children in ways that can follow them throughout their lives, causing emotional and psychological scars. For kids in hospitals, pain can be caused by injections, IV insertions, fractures, stomach issues, and many other common causes.

Researchers have accumulated knowledge on how to prevent or minimize the pain caused by procedures in children, however, health care professionals are not always aware of this evidence. With the right education, parents can be powerful advocates for their children when in hospital. Together, health care professionals, hospitals and parents can change the way pain is managed to improve the hospital experience for the child.

This November 4, learn how to advocate for your child when in hospital from one of the world's foremost pain experts. University of Toronto and SickKids Hospital researcher Bonnie Stevens will be sharing the latest cutting-edge research on what works with children's pain management during this one-time public lecture.

Date: Monday, November 4
Lecture: 6–7 p.m.

Where: Oborowsky Degner Hall
Li Ka Shing Centre for Health Research Innovation
University of Alberta
