The goal of the Online Paediatric Pain Curriculum is to provide a broad educational platform for health care professionals to learn about pain within clinical, basic science, and ethical themes. These 10 modules are free and can be viewed independently and interchangeably. Features of the core curriculum include:

  • Based on the International Association for the Study of Pain Core Curriculum for professional education in pain.
  • Available to anyone via the web, anywhere in the world.

The Premature Infant Pain Profile Revised

PIPP-R Module

This e-Learning module describes the Premature Infant Pain Profile-Revised (PIPP-R) and how to use it in your clinical setting.

The PIPP-R is for assessing acute and procedural pain in newborn infants and has been validated for use in pre-term infants ≥28 gestational age and newborns up to two months. The PIPP-R addresses validity and feasibility issues in the original PIPP.

PICH Infographic

This infographic shows the positive impacts Pain in Child Health (PICH) has had on paediatric pain research and practice. PICH is a transdisciplinary, international research training consortium that has been funded since 2002 as a CIHR Strategic Training Initiative in Health Research, with contributions from other funding partners (i.e. Mayday Fund) and the founding participation of five Canadian universities. Dr. Bonnie Stevens is the Nominated Principal Investigator. In spring 2016, PICH was integrated into the SickKids Pain Centre.

The goal of PICH is to create a community of scholars in paediatric pain to improve child health outcomes. To date, there have been 524 publications produced by PICH trainees and faculty.
