Kim Caddell RN BN

MOM-LINC Lab Manager / Research Coordinator

With over 30 years working in NICUs, Kim has extensive experience with premature infants and their families. As a research coordinator, she has participated in numerous single and multi-site trials on infant studies looking at non-pharmacological comfort measures for pain in infants, co-bedding twins, appropriate sucrose dosing, validation of pain scores, non-conventional comfort measures (such as Therapeutic Touch), and maternal studies including the use of skin-to-skin/kangaroo care (KC) and galactagogues, such as Domperidone.

Kim has been a mentor for nurses working in the NICU and members of research teams working within the IWK. Kim was part of the team that produced the original NICU Parent handbook, which was specific to the IWK. Her committee work includes Workload Measurement Systems, Pain Strategies, Developmental Care, Key Trainer for IT Systems, and NICU Research Orientation.

 

Kim has a passion for research and loves to share it through workshops, such as teaching lab and NICU staff proper positioning for bloodwork collections using KC and individualized teaching with parents at the bedside. She is an invaluable member of the MOM LINC team.
