Why does children’s pain get short shrift?

“When a child ends up in hospital, we assume everything will be done to care for them, including minimizing pain.

We are very excited to see our research in today’s Globe and Mail article, “Why does children’s pain get short shrift?” by Public Health Reporter, André Picard.
