While it’s becoming known that 1 in 5 British Columbians lives with chronic pain, it may come as more of a surprise that persistent pain is also common in children.

In this month’s episode of the Pain Waves podcast, we’re joined by Dr. Sue Bennett and Dr. Erin Moon, who are both registered psychologists at BC Children’s Hospital. They talk to us about pediatric pain, how pain can affect growth and development in children, and the impacts of childhood pain on parents. They also share insights and resources that can help children and their parents manage pediatric pain and its impacts.
