The Understanding Pediatric Pain in Aboriginal Communities (UnPPAC) pilot project was the first ACHH project. To begin to understand the pain and hurt experience of Indigenous children and youth, Dr. Latimer partnered with Eskasoni First Nation’s Health Director, Sharon Rudderham and community members who took part in conversation sessions regarding their pain and hurt. Participants included a total of 114 participants with 76 children and youth, 12 parents, 7 teachers and 6 Elders. The participants invited us into their homes and community and shared their personal, often difficult, stories in an effort to contribute their knowledge and improve the wellbeing of Indigenous children in their community. The Eskasoni community remains a key partner on all ACHH Initiative work.
