Over the past four decades, we have gone from believing that infants and young children did not experience pain to actually realizing that young children may actually experience more pain and pain-related distress than older children and adults. Vaccination pain can be challenging, overwhelming and fear-inducing to young children and the parents who love them. Even health professionals report stress at having to expose children to necessary painful procedures.

 

There is a large amount of scientific evidence about best practices to use when you vaccinate your child. Building on the recommendations created for About Kids Health Pain Hub (https://www.aboutkidshealth.ca/pain), Dr. Pillai Riddell will teach parents and professionals quick tips and tricks using the 3 P’s (Psychological, Pharmacological and Physical) that not only reduce pain during the current vaccination appointment but, by reducing children’s pre-needle fear in the future, will support pain and pain-related distress resilience throughout their life!
