My current PhD research is about the association between distress and acute pain in pediatric inpatients admitted in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, focusing on the medical treatment condition and the developmental phase of the children. I am interested in the relationship between pain regulation at pre-school phase and distress during medical procedures in a intensive care context.
