Stemming from her research and volunteer experiences in pediatric health settings, her research interests within pediatric pain include interventions for procedure pain management and how knowledge translation can improve families’ access to evidence-based practices for pain management. Her current research is focused on understanding how partnerships between researchers, health professionals, and families can aid in knowledge translation and implementation activities to promote the dissemination and uptake of evidence to manage children’s pain.

Nicole is a PhD Candidate at the University of Melbourne and continues to work clinically as a Registered Nurse caring for sick children and their families. Her research focuses on exploring pain and pain management in hospitalised children. During her Master of Philosophy, Nicole engaged with key stakeholders to design and plan a study aimed at exploring children’s experiences of pain and pain management within the Paediatric Emergency Department. This was the first Australian study to utilise the draw, write and tell technique to capture children’s pain related experiences. The focus of her PhD is to examine current pain management practices within Australian Paediatric Hospitals, since the integration of Electronic Medical Record Systems (EMRs) to determine how effective pain management care is for children and their families. Nicole’s is also interested in seeking the perspectives of parents and children relating to their perceived role and benefits in using EMRs to enter their own pain data.

Newborns admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are frequently exposed to painful medical procedures in the absence of analgesia. One major barrier to adequately managing infant pain in NICUs is the lack of a reliable pain assessment tool. Current infant pain assessment tools mostly rely on broad behavioural indices of pain. No clinical pain assessment tool presently incorporates infants’ cortical responses to pain as a potential indicator for pain specificity. This is problematic as past research has demonstrated a variable relationship between infants’ pain-related cortical activity and their behavioural responses. Using more fine-grained and comprehensive measurements of both responses, the goal of my M.A. thesis was to examine the associations between behavioural and cortical indicators of pain-related distress following a painful medical procedure in hospitalized newborns. My Ph.D. dissertation will further my program of research by exploring parent influences on hospitalized newborns’ behavioural, physiological, and cortical pain-related responses.

Dr. Rebecca Lee is a post-doctoral researcher at The University of Manchester, UK.

During her PhD, she worked on the development of a multi-dimensional mobile health iPad application for children and young people to report their pain daily, called My Pain Tracker. My Pain Tracker collects data remotely on pain intensity, severity, location, emotion and interference. The tool has been used in several studies, exploring its reliability/validity, investigating children and young people’s administrative preferences for such tools and looking into how healthcare professionals interpret the in-depth pain data collected. More recently, Dr Lee has turned her attention to the ways in which new assessment and communication tools, like My Pain Tracker, can be implemented into clinical practice. The current aim of her research is to develop a behaviour change intervention to facilitate more effective pain conversations between professionals, children, young people and their parents particularly in paediatric rheumatology.

My name is Spencer Epp, I am currently a master’s student in the field of Neuroscience at the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I chose this program following completion of my undergraduate degree in health sciences largely because I wanted to continue to learn and explore clinical research. My work so
far has involved operating the world’s first repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation robot for treatment of chronic pain in youth. I am incredibly excited to continue to learn about child health and treatment of serious ailments, as I continue to interact and connect with the participants in this brain
stimulation study. Following my graduate studies, I am hoping to pursue a career in pediatric medicine, and this experience continues to be invaluable to me.
