Abstract

Soft on Sticks is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, evidence-based practice initiative that was implemented to ensure consistent use of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic interventions to reduce pain associated with needlestick procedures performed on children. Pre- and postimplementation data from children, parents, and nurses showed positive results from the practice change and identified areas for further improvement.
