Parent and staff-targeted video resources to increase utilization of evidence-based infant pain management strategies

Last modified by Paula Robeson on 2020/05/25 22:56

In this webinar, the development and evaluation of parent and staff-targeted videos demonstrating evidence-based pain management strategies for infants, co-produced with parents of infants, trainees, clinicians and researchers, will be discussed.

Learning Objectives: 

  • To learn evidence-based procedural pain treatment strategies for newborns and infants 
  • To learn about knowledge translation tools available  for healthcare providers and parents – which can help increase use of breastfeeding, skin-skin or sucrose for needle-related pain
  • To understand facilitators and barriers to using evidence in practice

Denise Harrison @DHarrisonBSweet2Babies recently moved from Ottawa, Canada, to take up a position as Professor of Nursing at the University of Melbourne. In 2011, she was appointed the inaugural holder of the Chair in Nursing Care of Children, Youth and Families at the University of Ottawa and Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), Canada. She developed and led the Be Sweet to Babies program of research which focuses on improving pain management for neonates, infants and young children in partnership with parents, clinicians, interdisciplinary researchers and trainees. Her research encompasses primary research (determining effective pain management strategies in sick and healthy infants and young children), knowledge synthesis (systematic reviews of interventions, as well as innovative synthesis of YouTube videos) and knowledge translation, including exploring innovative ways to translate knowledge into clinical practice locally, nationally and globally. Her parent targeted YouTube videos show ease and effectiveness of performing heel lancing while babies are being breastfed, held skin-skin and given sucrose ( ). As a result of a barriers assessment, she partnered with mothers of newborns, students, nurses, researchers, an occupational health physiotherapist and an organization to produce another video, this time targeted at healthcare providers, which demonstrates correct ergonomic positioning for performing newborn screening while babies are being breastfed and held skin-skin ( ). Denise now looks forward to being home in Melbourne after nine years in Ottawa, Canada and establishing new and re-establishing existing partnerships with the aim of improving outcomes for babies, children and their families.
