CCTR interviews Dr. Christine Chambers of the Centre for Pediatric Pain Research at IWK Health Center in Nova Scotia, and Dr. Jennifer Stinson, nurse at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto about #KidsCancerPain, a new social media campaign supported by the Canadian Cancer Knowledge Network designed to help children with cancer and their parents better assess and treat their children’s pain symptoms.  A new application for iphone, Pain Squad, is a game-like program that helps kids manage and assess their pain needs with immediate pdf communication to their doctor, available now for free download.  The social media campaign involves tweets, blogs, links to important information, and also helps parents to connect.  Search the hashtag #KidsCancerPain on Facebook for the many resources now available to the public through this campaign.
