Congratulations to the recipients of this year's Noni MacDonald Award - Dr. Evenlyne Trottier from CHU Sainte-Justine and her co-authors Drs. Samina Ali, Sylive Le May and Jocelyn Gravel - awarded for their multi-site PERC study Treating and Reducing Anxiety and Pain in the Paediatric Emergency Department: The TRAPPED survey. The authors examined the availability of pain and anxiety management strategies currently used in Canadian paediatric emergency departments, and found a wide variation. They identified several pain-reduction procedures to address gaps.
The Noni MacDonald award recognizes an article in Paediatrics & Child Health that has positively affected paediatric medicine. The project was realized in collaboration with Pediatric Emergency Research Canada (PERC).
