An exciting new animation has been produced by Dr Fiona Moultrie, a member of the PiPA Group, describing how infants feel pain. It also includes ways in which we measure pain in babies as a group. Animation by Charlotte Moultrie. Follow Joe’s Journey below.
The Poppi Trial officially launched on the 15th September, and recruitment is now underway! The trial will take place over 3 years and aims to recruit 156 infants. It is a single centre randomised placebo-controlled trial investigating the efficacy of morphine analgesia for procedural pain in infants. The protocol was published in the Lancet and can… Continue reading Poppi Trial Launch!
We are going to begin recruitment for the Poppi trial soon. Poppi is a randomised controlled trial investigating the use of morphine as an analgesic for procedural pain in infants. The protocol for the trial has been published in The Lancet and can be viewed here: Hartley C, Moultrie F, Juszczak E, Adams E & Slater R. (2016) Protocol… Continue reading The Poppi Trial – Protocol Publication
