For a lot of patients and caregivers, medical blood draws and injections can cause anxiety, fear, and even trauma due to the needles involved.
We are hosting a free webinar for UCD, CGD and Cystinosis patients and caregivers. The webinar features Pamela Alma Weymouth from MIGHTY KIDS CAN called “Trauma-Less Needle Pokes: 7 Steps to Easier Injections, Blood Draws, and IVs.”
It is our intent to offer education and techniques for patients and caregivers to manage stress during needle-poke procedures.
Each step in this plan is backed by evidence-based research, but these are recommendations only and may need to be modified to work best for you or your child’s specific medical situation.
