Outreach to parents of newly diagnosed patients.  #KidsCancerPain wants to make sure they are reaching newly diagnosed families, and not just those who are already well connected with different cancer organizations and groups. They are sending fliers and information about the project to all Canadian children’s hospitals and oncology division heads and to major US pediatric cancer centres (with a letter from Christine Chambers). Please contact #KidsCancerPain  if you have more ideas or suggestions on how they can reach this important group.

Table Banners, Pull Up Banners and Posters.  #KidsCancerPain has banners, posters and flyers to be used whenever possible. Contact #KidsCancerPain for more information.

Then continue to follow #KidsCancerPain over the next 12 month through social media and on our webpage as we bring you the very best, cutting-edge research evidence about children’s cancer pain – what causes it, common myths, how to assess it, how to treat it, and more!

Go to http://thndr.me/M9iXxF before July 27 and add your support to the #KidsCancerPain THUNDERCLAP – it only take a minute (or less) and each supporter will amplify the visibility of their social media launch on July 27 – invite your friends, post and tweet.

We are planning a social media Thunderclap!

A Thunderclap is an organized social media event that allows a single message to be mass shared, flash-mob style, so it is heard above the noise online, makes a statement, and gets noticed. By having everyone share the same message at the same time, Thunderclap helps to create action and awareness.

Please join our #KidsCancerPain Thunderclap being organized for July 27th.

It’s easy to join! Just click on this link: http://thndr.me/M9iXxF

You can choose to be a part of the #KidsCancerPain Thunderclap on Twitter, Facebook, or both! Just add your name to the Thunderclap and that’s it – now you will be part of our message that will be amplified and help us reach hundreds of thousands of people. The link will allow you to automatically schedule a tweet to be posted at the designated date (July 27th) and time (9 pm Eastern) – You don’t need to remember or be online to do it then! Thunderclap posts it for you!!

Thunderclap works best when everyone works together. We need a minimum of 100 people to sign up or the Thunderclap won’t work. Please join us and help spread the word in your networks to ask others to sign up before July 27th.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks for your support of the #KidsCancerPain parent survey. Over 250 parents have completed the survey so far! The responses will be used to shape the focus of our campaign content over the coming year. The survey will remain open until 9 pm (Eastern) on July 20th, so there is still time left for more parents to participate.

But we need your help again… We are planning something *SPECIAL* to help direct attention to our first #KidsCancerPain content (blog & video) that will go live on the new #KidsCancerPain section of the Cancer Knowledge Network webpage on July 27th.

 More questions about Thunderclap? Watch a short explanatory video: https://www.thunderclap.it/about.  It only takes 5 minutes to join and it’s completely safe. When you sign up you are simply allowing the site to post one single tweet or Facebook post on your behalf and will only use your information from your friend lists to calculate your reach. Then on the same day, at the exact same time, everyone who has joined will have the same message posted causing a ripple over social media and reaching people far and wide.

 Please help us recruit others to join us by forwarding this email, tweeting, or posting about the #KidsCancerPain Thunderclap on Facebook.:

 

Thank you!

 

Christine, on behalf of the #KidsCancerPain team

There is a THUNDERCLAP coming. If you have a Twitter account get ready to support #KidsCancerPain by joining – instructions next week.

Not sure what a Thunderclap even is?  Watch https://www.thunderclap.it/about

#KidsCancerPain will be launching their first #KidsCancerPain content on July 27th, including the 1st blog and video, featured on the new #KidsCancerPain landing page on the CKN website. In order to help draw attention to this content launch, during the week leading up to the 27th (so from July 20th to 27th) we will be organizing a Twitter Thunderclap! More information and instructions on this will follow, but briefly a Twitter Thunderclap allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. These can be a lot of fun, and very impactful, so we will be working hard to organize a great Thunderclap and hope we can count on each of you to be a part of it and share.

#KidsCancerPain Survey: 1 week left for parents and caregivers to contribute. Please circulate/post.

Over 200 parents/caregivers have participated so far – thank you! Please continue to spread the word about the campaign & survey (which is open for until July 20).  The survey link is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KidsCancerPain and can be easily found by searching for #KidsCancerPain and survey.

Share and retweet in your networks and over social media to help promote the survey and the resource/campaign.

Contact the researchers (jennifera.parker (at) iwk.nshealth.ca) for campaign materials for distribution; click here for a survey invitation poster, campaign poster, and samples of digital campaign files can be found here and here.

 

What is #KidsCancerPain?

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.
