The creative use of technology for distraction

By Susie Hall 12 Apr 2016 0

Digital technology should be effectively harnessed in the care of children and young people to provide innovative and relevant ‘tools’ that aid communication and preparation for procedures. This project builds on the outcomes from a study led by the GO Create! arts programme and the Centre for Outcomes and Experience Research in Children’s Health, Illness and Disability at Great Ormond Street Hospital, supported by Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity and the Burdett Nursing Trust.
