#KidsCancerPain – Help Christine Chambers and Jennifer Stinson circulate a parent/caregiver survey to study the impact of their just-launched “Making Cancer Less Painful for Kids” Campaign
Over the next 12 months, #KidsCancerPain will be bringing parents the very best, cutting-edge research evidence about children’s cancer pain – what causes it, how to assess it, how to treat it, common myths, and more! This information will be shared with parents in a series of blogs, videos, images, Facebook posts, and Twitter chats, all posted and shared on the Cancer Knowledge Network website (https://cancerkn.com/) and social media. They will be studying the reach of the campaign and its impact on parents.
You will be learning more about #KidsCancerPain, but in the meanwhile these researchers are asking you to share and promote in your networks and on social media. The major focus right now is getting as many parents/caregivers who have a child with cancer currently in treatment, remission or who is a survivor to complete the survey. The survey takes 10-15 min to complete and there is a chance to win 1 of 3 $250 Visa gift cards. This is a critical component of the evaluation of the campaign.
