The protocol for the Poppi Trial (Procedural Pain in Premature Infants) has been published on the Wellcome Open Research platform. The protocol documents the background, rationale, methods and design of the trial. The Poppi trial, which aims to establish whether oral morphine provides effective analgesia for procedural pain in infants, is led by Dr Eleri Adams and Dr Rebeccah Slater in collaboration with the NPEU and the Paediatric and Infant Pain & Anaesthesia (PiPA) group. You can read the protocol now for more details about the trial. Our congratulations go out to the entire Poppi Trial team.
