Which psychological interventions are effective in managing pediatric needle pain?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Distraction and hypnosis reduce the pain of needle procedures in children and adolescents. Distraction can be as simple as reading stories, watching videos, listening to music, or talking about something other than the procedure. Hypnosis reduces both pain and distress but may be less generalizable in a pediatric setting.
