Abstract

AbstractAimsTo establish a network for research and education and to provide expert knowledge to parents and health care professionals about pain in early life.MethodsIn November 2014 a group of Nordic researchers and research students, committed to the field of pain in early life, gathered for an open lecture day and workshop in Örebro, Sweden. Inspired by the work of the Canadian initiative PICH – Pain In Child Health, the network formulated it’s vision: To be a stabile and competent research and training network within the area of pain in early life. A first collaborate project was designed: “Translation, cultural adaptation and validation of the revised version of the Premature Infant Pain Profile (PIPP-R): An effort to improve pain assessment in infants in the Nordic countries”.ResultsFourteen months later, in January 2016, the second PEARL-meeting was held, in Oslo, Norway. The lecture day provided clinically active nurses and physicians from several countries with the latest findings on how to best manage pain in neonatal settings. The network which now consist of 18 researchers from different professions and academic levels presents itself on a five-language website: www.pearl.direct. The PIPP-R project has progressed according to the plan. The PIPP-R is translated into Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish. The cultural adaptation and validation should be finished in fall 2016. The members work on and plan for further collaborate projects. The next two steps are to translate and distribute educational material for parents via Internet and social media, and to establish a research and mas-ters course about pain in early life. The work has been secured by funding from Örebro University and Örebro University Hospital Research Foundation. ConclusionsPEARL fulfils the need for a collaborative network for pain in early life researchers in the Nordic countries.
