Newborn infants, especially sick or preterm infants, are exposed to a great amount of stress and pain, inflicting short- and long-term negative consequences. The research group studies pharmacological and supporting interventions to prevent and decrease this stress and pain and its effects. Main focuses are the role of parents in pain management, and on knowledge synthetization and transition to those who can and should use this knowledge. We are among the world-leading groups in this area and our results contribute to better pain management in many countries.
The group has a wide national and international research-collaboration and works closely with the international PEARL research group.
