The information that matters...
A traumatic early needle experience caused by unmanaged procedural pain can result in long-term physiological and psychological consequences and in severe cases lead to an extreme fear of needles that continues into adulthood.
Fear of needles can lead to avoidance of critical medical treatments and procedures including immunisations, pathology tests and IV infusions.
For clinicians, significant amounts of time can be spent dealing with patients’ anxiety and most needle-procedures with children require additional staff to be involved. A simple injection can often take up to 20-90 minutes.
Around 1 in 5 people have a fear of needles with this fear affecting up to 90% of the paediatric population.
