 The purpose of this study was to identify the gap between health care professionals and children who receive medical procedures. The participants were seventeen two- to ten-year-old children, physicians and nurses who involved in the procedures. They were informed the purpose of research and agreed to become as participants. Observation and interviews were used for research methods. The data were analyzed qualitatively.

 The gap between health care professionals and children were as follows :

 There was the gap between health care professionalsユ judgment of childrenユs ability and childrenユs actual ability.

 There was the gap between childrenユs behavior while they received medical procedures and health care professionalsユ responses to that.

 There was the gap in understanding of the situation between children and health care professionals. Because health care professionals performed procedures on their own way, children couldnユt understand what would be going on.

 The results showed health care professionalsユ lack of ability of imagination and consideration. As health care professionals thought that it was good to finish procedures as fast as possible, they couldnユt afford to imagine of childrenユs feelings and efforts.

 Nurses need to know childrenユs feelings and efforts, so that they can increase childrenユs potential and actual ability while children receive medical procedures.
