Have you been involved in activities to make a difference in children’s pain?

We are currently recruiting for a brief survey with patients and caregivers who have taken part in activities to make a difference in children’s health and pain through knowledge sharing activities.

These activities may include (but are not limited to):
• Development of clinical practice guidelines
• Creation of parent information resources such as handouts, posters, or videos
• Advisory committee participation
• Research evidence summaries
• Health service improvement activities
• Education or training for health professionals
• Activities promoting policy changes

This study is being conducted by Nicole MacKenzie, a PhD Student at Dalhousie University under the supervision of Dr. Christine Chambers and Dr. Kathryn Birnie and has been approved by the IWK Health Research Ethics Board (REB# 1027459).

If you would like to learn more about this survey and participate, please email us at
Those who complete the survey have the opportunity to be entered into a draw for a $25 CAD gift card.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

PVN has really helped us engage with patient partners to improve health services at Northern Health.  It is more and more becoming the norm to include patients in the design, delivery and evaluation of health services.  PVN education and supports, involving patient partners, have enabled us to develop the capacity to include the patient voice to make care better and achieve better health outcomes.
