Keywords:Facilitated tucking position, Neonates, Pain perception & Vaccination.
Background and Objective: A study was done to assess the effectiveness of facilitated tucking position on
pain perception among neonates during vaccination in selected hospital of Panipat. Material & Methods:
The methodology of the present study was true experimental research design. Sample size of the study was
60 neonates during vaccination selected with random sampling technique. 30 neonates in each group was
