Pain management for children is currently highly individualized, lacking evaluation at the systematic level.
In a recent article published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, informaticians developed a database of pediatric pain treatments and outcomes called the Pediatric Pain Data Repository to close that gap.
What did they discover? The Pediatric Pain Data Repository successfully supports care decision-making for children and young teens experiencing pain.
Why Informatics? So, we can improve pain management methods for babies and children in clinical care.
