Pain Waves

How two Canadian initiatives are advancing children’s pain research and practice


Canada is known as a world leader in children’s pain research, yet it often takes a long time for emerging evidence to make its way into standard clinical practice.On this month’s episode of the Pain Waves podcast, we’re joined by Dr. Katie Birnie, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at the University of Calgary and a clinical psychologist at Alberta Children’s Hospital. She talks to us about the important work that is underway to advance how children’s pain is understood and managed across Canada through two major research and knowledge translation initiatives – the Partnering for Pain project and the Solutions for Kids in Pain (SKIP) network.Resources mentioned in this episode:- Partnering for Pain project: Solutions for Kids in Pain network: Pediatric Pain Letter (co-written by Dr. Katie Birnie and people with lived experiences): Opportunity to participate as a lived experience partner with SKIP: the conversation on social media:#PartneringForPain #PartenairesPourLaDouleur #ItDoesntHaveToHurt
