That's inspiring! ~ Dr. Christine Chambers
It's flu-shot-season and I don't know of a single child who isn't bothered by the thought of getting a needle. Hell, I don't know an adult who wouldn't avoid a needle if they could. But it doesn't have to hurt; at least not as much. Led by Dr. Christine Chambers, the Canada Research Chair in Children’s Pain and a Professor in the Departments of Pediatrics and Psychology & Neuroscience at Dalhousie University, "It doesn't have to hurt" is an initiative to get research about children’s pain into the hands of parents so they can use it. Helping children deal with the pain and trauma of getting a needle is “it doesn’t have to hurt” at its most basic level but also some of practical information a parent will ever receive. Listen to what Dr. Christine Chambers has to say about how you can help your child when its needle time, and take the to watch the video to help you commit the tips to memory.
