The Pediatric Pain Community Responds to NPR’s Invisibilia Podcast “The Fifth Vital Sign”

 

“Pain is NOT simply a matter of attention and psychological state of mind. It does not just respond to putting children in intense/more intense pain and teaching them to push through.”

The Society for Pediatric Pain Medicine

 

The Society for Pediatric Pain Medicine has penned an official response to NPR’s Invisibilia Podcast “The Fifth Vital Sign”.

The Society for Pediatric Pain Medicine (SPPM), “is a professional organization dedicated to providing better care for children in pain, through clinical care, education, research, and advocacy,” as well as being an endorsing organization of ChildKind International.

ChildKind International is proud to stand with SPPM and is grateful to SPPM for their thoughtful response to NPR’s podcast.
