My research seeks to culturally transform our sensitivity to children's pain: to better prevent, assess, treat and understand children's pain, especially for predictable pain and pain in children with communication limitations. My focus is acute, post-operative and procedural pain; risk factors for challenging to control acute pain, including genetic differences in pain sensitivity and analgesic metabolism; transition from acute to chronic pain; and predictors of adverse acute pain treatment out...[Read full text]My research seeks to culturally transform our sensitivity to children's pain: to better prevent, assess, treat and understand children's pain, especially for predictable pain and pain in children with communication limitations. My focus is acute, post-operative and procedural pain; risk factors for challenging to control acute pain, including genetic differences in pain sensitivity and analgesic metabolism; transition from acute to chronic pain; and predictors of adverse acute pain treatment outcomes, including opioid misuse. I have conducted educational research of pediatric healthcare provider and students knowledge and attitudes regarding pain since 1998.

My focus is acute, post-operative and procedural pain; risk factors for challenging to control acute pain, including genetic differences in pain sensitivity and analgesic metabolism.
Use of multimodal analgesia, opioid-sparing therapies, opioid prescribing and anticipatory guidance for securing, monitoring and disposing of opioids to prevent pediatric opioid misuse.[Shorten text]
