Clinical Trial Summary

The diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer involves frequent and repeated painful acts. The pediatric oncology-hematology service of Nancy's hospital innovates thanks to the involvement of clowns in the hospital. The effects of the clown's intervention corroborate the results of studies which demonstrate that when painful complaints are increased by an empathetic attitude, they are reduced by half when the child is distracted. The main objective is to assess the impact of the presence or absence of clowns during the performance of a painful act, on pain, in children who have benefited from this act. no clowns during the performance of a painful act, on anxiety, in children who have benefited from this act. The secondary objectives are: - Evaluate the impact of the presence or not of clowns during the performance of a painful act, on the anxiety of the parents of the child who benefited from this act. - Measure the perception and acceptance of the healthcare team of the presence of clowns 1 time every 3 months. - Measure the clowns' perception of their interaction with the child, the parents and the healthcare team once every 3 months. - Evaluate the overall impact of the clown intervention during the performance of a painful act in children on the course of the act by a "neutral" person (health manager) once every 3 months.
