ACHH Publication – CMAJ: Occurrence of and referral to specialists for pain-related diagnoses in First Nations & non–First Nations children and youth

The ACHH Initiative has released its latest research paper titled, “Occurrence of and referral to specialists for pain-related diagnoses in First Nations and non–First Nations children and youth” in CMAJ December 2018 – Volume 190, Issue 49.

The paper focuses on how Indigenous children and youth have higher rates of chronic health conditions interfering with healthy development, including high rates of ear, dental, chest and musculoskeletal pain, as well as headache, arthritis and mental health issues. This study explores differences in pain-related diagnoses in First Nations and non–First Nations children.
