17 Sep ACHH Publication – PAIN Reports: September 2018 Special Issue
The ACHH Initiative has released its latest research paper titled, “Creating a safe space for First Nations youth to share their pain” in PAIN Reports September 2018 – Innovations in Pediatric Pain Research and Care: Special Issue.
The paper focuses on how Indigenous children and youth may be quiet about the way they express their pain and hurt which is in contrast to how health professionals are trained to assess it. The aim of the paper is to understand how youth from 4 First Nation communities express pain using narratives and art-based methods to inform culturally appropriate assessment and treatment.
