Learning Hub

This learning hub has information on acute and chronic pain, including signs and symptoms, methods of assessment and the 3P approach to pain management. The information has been developed in close collaboration with the Pain Centre at The Hospital for Sick Children and the OUCH (Opportunities to Understand Childhood Hurt) Lab at York University. 

The acute and chronic pain sections are organized by age, which is an important factor in how a child's pain is assessed and treated. However, when reading this information, please remember that every child's situation is unique. If you have questions about your own child's care, please speak to your child's doctor.
