Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract

Children who need a clinical procedure such as a medical examination, blood test, radiological investigation, vaccination or the administration of treatment can often feel worried and anxious about what will happen. Even minor procedures can be worrying for children who will often be entering an unfamiliar clinical environment full of new people, sights, smells, sounds and equipment ( Krauss and Krauss, 2019 ). Those with long term conditions may experience anticipatory anxiety ( Racine et al., 2016 ) as they may be revisiting a place where they have previously experienced pain, discomfort or medical trauma ( Morton, 2015 , Morton, 2020 ).
