UROP Research Summary
My UROP project aimed to address the knowledge to action gap regarding effective pain management strategies during infant immunizations. In order to address the gap, a combined parent and health care provider-targeted video to widely disseminate knowledge about the use of breastfeeding and sucrose to reduce pain and distress during infant immunizations is being produced.Currently, recruitment and filming processes are proceeding well and further families are being recruited.
