Many of the physicians, psychologists and nurse practitioners in the Pain Management Program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are involved with clinical research and/or basic science research in order to expand our knowledge and care for all children in pain.
While your child is in the Hospital or is being seen in a CHOP outpatient clinic, he or she may be offered an opportunity to participate in a research study. Participation in research is voluntary. Your child will still get the same pain management whether he or she chooses to participate in research or not.
For more information about the Pain Management Program at CHOP or to schedule an appointment, please call 215-590-1409.
