[Research Presentation] Problem: Most hospitalized children received an intravenous injection in Taiwan. Cheng (2004) found children reported medium pain and fear during intravenous injection. Study also found children's current pain and fear experiences are affected by their pain expectation and previous pain experiences. There is no double that children are suffered unnecessary pain. Developing a protocol to reduce children's pain is needed. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of a compound pain alleviation protocol on children's procedural pain and fear. Methodology: A Quasi experimental study with two-group posttest was conducted. A total of 216 children with mean age of 5.98 years old was recruited in this study; 122 children were boys (56.5%) and 94 children were girls (43.5%); 117 children were in experimental group who received a compound pain alleviation protocol during intravenous injection and another 99 children were in control group. A compound pain alleviation protocol included aroma therapy, music therapy, guild image and comfort therapy. Findings: The findings revealed that there is a significant different between experimental and control groups (t= -6.375, p= .00). Children who received a compound pain alleviation protocol reported less pain and fear than children who received no protocol. By comparing children's previous procedural pain experience in the experimental group only, the results also indicated a significant different between current procedural pain and previous procedural pain (t= 7.514, p= .00), children who received a compound pain alleviation protocol reported less pain and fear than previous procedural experience. The findings should be implemented into pediatric setting in the hospital and a compound pain alleviation protocol will be introduced to the nurses in order to effectively reduce children's procedural pain.
