Our objectives:

  • To continue to actively maintain our community and its function
  • To promote a high standard of care for children in pain
  • To raise the profile of managing pain in children’s nursing

The community is currently identifying the lead coordinator. In the meantime contact Jessica Higson, Chair of Children and Young People’s Professional Issues Forum at
