Procedural pain continues to be a significant issue for children in the hospital (e.g. for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes) and in the community (e.g. immunization). The goals of this webinar were to (a) review the current state of evidence for preventing and/ or ameliorating procedural pain in hospitalized children or healthy children receiving painful procedures in the community; (b) describe efforts to effectively implement research evidence into practice using infant and toddler and school age and adolescent populations; and (c) strategize how evidence can be made more usable for health care professional and parental care providers.
