For Health Professionals
Pediatric Pain Management Program, IWK Health Centre
The Pediatric Pain Management Program at the IWK Health Centre works in collaboration with pediatricians, surgeons, and family doctors to manage children’s pain after surgery or injury, and pain caused by cancer, infections, arthritis, or other illnesses. We also help children with complex or chronic pain, which is pain that continues even after an injury has healed or when there is no obvious disease.
Pain, Pain Go Away: Helping Children with Pain
Pain, Pain Go Away: Helping Children with Pain is a booklet to help parents understand pain.
