Producing and Promoting Valuable Tools
We collaborate with our partners to produce and promote evidence-based tools to ensure solutions get into the hands of people who can put them into practice.
SKIP has partnered with the Health Standards Organization (HSO) to improve the quality and safety of care for all children through the creation of a Pediatric Pain Management Standard. This standard facilitates institutional change in children’s pain management by supporting efforts to access, adopt, and implement evidence. The person-centered philosophy of the HSO is consistent with SKIP’s Patients Included approach.
SKIP partnered with Pediatric & Neonatal Pain, a new multidisciplinary journal, for two open-access special issues showcasing innovative knowledge mobilization in pediatric and neonatal pain management from around the world. Special issues focused on neonatal pain (published September 2020) and pediatric pain (published December 2020).
SKIP has co-hosted seven Children’s Healthcare Canada Spark: Live webinars, attracting approximately 1200 registrants. These webinars offer the chance to share evidence and promote its use in practice and policy with the Canadian children’s health community. Topics have included COVID-19 and its impact on families, mobilizing virtual care, patient engagement, and diagnostic uncertainty in pediatric chronic pain.
SKIP’s partnership with The Rounds has provided a platform to share evidence-based resources to physicians and health professionals across Canada and around the world. During the “Ask Me Anything” events, pediatric pain experts share their knowledge and answer questions from members of The Rounds community about pediatric pain. This partnership ensures evidence-based tools and resources about children’s pain are put into practice.
