ChildKind International

Although pain management for children has improved dramatically in
some settings, children continue to suffer from inconsistent
application of available knowledge and principles. There are
enormous variations between institutions and within institutions as to
the attitudes and knowledge base of health care providers regarding
pain management.

ChildKind International is an initiative to improve the quality of pain
control for children in healthcare facilities worldwide, through the
awarding of a special designation and accreditation to institutions
that have implemented specific policies which are known to promote
pain reduction.
