Pediatric Pain Prediction Project Advisory Group



Open to Provincial Region, Patient partners across the province


Our team is looking for parents/caregivers of a child who had previously undergone a medical procedure (e.g. surgery) at BC Children’s Hospital to join an Advisory Committee. We aim to develop an easy-to-use tool (e.g. smartphone app, webpage) to identify children who are at high risk of pain after their surgery. We need your guidance and feedback on our research processes, which include data collection, tool building and tool evaluation.

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
