#KidsCancerPain

Children with cancer experience pain, often severe and prolonged, over the course of their disease and treatment. Unfortunately, we know that children with cancer don’t always receive the best pain management possible, and that parents are often looking for more solutions at a time when they are stressed and exhausted. 

We will be addressing this problem through a social media campaign for parents: “Making Cancer Less Painful For Kids” (#KidsCancerPain). The Cancer Knowledge Network is partnering with a research team of internationally known health researchers and clinicians led by Dr. Christine Chambers (IWK Health Centre; @DrCChambers) and Dr. Jennifer Stinson (SickKids; @DrJenStinson) to bring the best research evidence about children’s cancer pain to parents who need it. Over the next 12 months, we will be bringing parents the very best, cutting-edge research evidence about children’s cancer pain – what causes it, common myths, how to assess it, how to treat it, and more!

And we’ll be sharing this information with parents in a series of blogs, videos, images, Facebook posts, and Twitter chats, all posted and shared on the Cancer Knowledge Network website and social media.

By taking part in our Thunderclap, you'll be helping us share the 1st blog and video on our new #KidsCancerPain webpage that will go live on July 27th.

The research team will be studying the reach of the campaign and its impact on parents and children. The campaign is funded by a research grant from the Canadian Cancer Society.  

Thank you supporting our Thunderclap! Visit our website to learn more and please share our #KidsCancerPain content over the next 12 months. Together, we'll be making cancer less painful for kids!
