Science Helping Children

The Centre for Pediatric Pain Research is an international leader in children’s pain research. The interdisciplinary research conducted by our faculty, students, and staff tackles many facets of children’s acute and chronic pain. We are committed to conducting high-quality research on how to better understand, assess, and manage children’s pain and translating this research into improved practice.
This site provides an overview of our work, including current research activities at the Centre, information about our faculty and students, as well as links to useful resources on pain assessment and management in children.
