Pain is a very traumatic experience for all ages, particularly in childhood, when it can give a deep laceration that may interfere with psycho-social growth. Hospitalization and pain, in a context of good practice and sharing, are important learning experiences that make them feel the care, empathy and trust in health care providers and institutions. Unnecessary pain should always be avoided, prevented and eradicated to safeguard human dignity and quality of life, especially for the younger ones.
