2017: Fundraising Objective

In 2017 we’re raising funds for a small automated drug dispensing cabinet valued at $40,000. Why? Because making a child comfortable as they face their illness is a real challenge. Pain control is a critical element of care, which relies on at least two factors: the efficient and effective delivery of drug therapies to patients and a well-coordinated and supportive team of allied health care professionals who surround the child and family. This investment will enhance the delivery of treatments and pain control from SickKids’ pharmacy department and will help to ensure the best possible experience and outcome for kids. Our gift will help to put this infrastructure in place so that drug-dispensing cabinets are on the unit and automated so that pain medication is always close by and available for quick relief.
