Welcome to a survey about the role of parents in neonatal pain management

The survey is performed by a working group within the Special Interest Group on Neonatal Pain within European Society of Pediatric Research (ESPR Neonatal Pain SIG) and the Pain in Early Life (PEARL) network. It is distributed through a number of professional and scientific networks around the globe.

The survey explores the conditions on a unit level, i.e. not on an individual level. The idea is that each neonatal unit responds once to the survey, so please ask the person with the most knowledge about pain management to deliver the answers. Depending on how your neonatal unit (NICU) is organized, this can be a neonatologist, NICU nurse, unit manager etc.

We will ask you about your hospital and name/number of the NICU. The reason for this is to sort out duplicate answers from the same unit. Your answers will be treated with confidentiality and the results will be reported on a group level where no individual unit can be identified.

Participation is voluntary but it is our hope that you will take the time (approximately 10-15 minutes) to answer the survey. 


If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Professor Mats Eriksson: mats.h.eriksson@oru.se or Alexandra Ullsten, PhD: alexandra.ullsten@oru.se.
