Our Research

The PPHC Lab actively conducts research and explores topics in pediatric pain. Learning more about children’s experience of pain is essential to the development and implementation of effective pain management and interventions. Dr. McMurtry’s research has so far explored the links between parental reassurance and children’s pain, as well as the interaction between pain and fear.
