Abstract
The Centre for Pediatric Pain Research at IWK Health Centre, Halifax, Canada, recently met to discuss the study by Diana Lisi of York University, Toronto, Canada, and colleagues examining parental pain management during immunizations throughout the first year of life. These observations occurred within the naturalistic setting of community pediatric clinics and thereby offer insight into the naturally occurring strategies used by parents to manage their infants’ pain during immunizations. The study particularly focuses on the non-pharmacological techniques used by parents immediately before and after immunizations, as well as infants’ distress throughout this time.  Below, we [Ayala Gorodzinsky and Line Caes] provide a brief synopsis of the study objectives, methods, and results, as well as discussion of a letter to the editor from Denise Harrison of Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute and the University of Ottawa, Canada, and a reply by Rebecca Pillai Riddell of York University, corresponding author of the study—including key points arising from our journal club discussion.  The main focus of our journal club discussion was on the ethical considerations of clinical researchers when conducting naturalistic observational research.
