The Comfort Kids Program provides education, mentorship, and training in the areas of procedural sedation and the non pharmacological management of procedural pain and distress. The program aims to identify strategies to support sustainable practice and promote cultural change in procedural pain management.
The approach adopted by the healthcare team, enables the child and family to understand their environment and cope with interventions. Providing comfort measures can be done by any healthcare professional. Research shows that when a child is engaged, they are able to use coping strategies during procedures. Through leadership by PPM practitioners and modelling by the healthcare team, parents are better informed to help their child.
