Reducing Pain and Fear: Integrating evidence into routine immunization practice

Webinar organized by Public Health Physicians of Canada (PHPC) in collaboration with Immunize Canada; June 11, 2015
Pain and fear associated with needle procedures such as immunizations is a common experience for infants, children and adults. These experiences, if not addressed, can lead to a host of deleterious consequences including increased pain perception during procedures, fear of health care providers, fainting, exaggerated pain memories, heightened distress at future procedures, non-compliance with immunization, and avoidance of healthcare. This presentation will offer strategies and interventions that clinicians can incorporate into their practice for mitigating pain and fear, and for reducing patient non-compliance to immunization series.
