Stakeholder Survey: Solutions for Kids in Pain
Canada is a world leader in children’s pain research. Effective treatments exist. Yet Canadian children and their families continue to report undertreated and preventable pain with barriers to evidence uptake, such as a lack of accessible resources and training and failure of the public and institutions to recognize and prioritize pain management.
We are in the process of preparing an application to the Networks Centres of Excellence Knowledge Mobilization initiative (NCE-KM) opportunity to support “Solutions for Kids in Pain (SKIP)”, a pan-Canadian network to mobilize knowledge from Canada’s world-renowned pediatric pain research community into practice. SKIP would be co-led by Dr. Christine Chambers (Dalhousie University) and Mr. Doug Maynard (Canadian Association of Paediatric Health Centres; CAPHC).
SKIP will bring together Canada’s knowledge producers in children’s pain, front-line knowledge user organizations, and end beneficiaries (patients, families), as well as other national and international stakeholders and partners, with a mission to improve children's pain management by mobilizing evidence-based solutions through coordination and collaboration.
We are reaching out to you to help us start to identify you/your organization’s needs in the area of children’s pain management. Additionally, we would like to gain a sense of how you might wish to be involved in SKIP and whether you would be willing to promote and share resources that are developed by SKIP within your own networks and/or in your organization.
This survey (12 questions) should take no more than 5 minutes of your time, and the responses you provide will be built in to the application that we are submitting for funding of SKIP in September. We will know the outcome of our application in November and will reach out to you again at that time.
Thank you in advance for your time and input!
