The Children Coming to Hospital resource was developed collaboratively with children, parents and health professionals and working with the wonderfully creative guys at MisterMunro.
Once the resources were designed and made, it was important for them to reach as many families as possible so that they could hopefully use them to have a better hospital experience. This is where it is vital to work in partnership with hospitals like Alder Hey Children’s Hospital to help spread the word.
Lucy Bray worked with Steph Sinha from the pain team at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital to help create the Children Coming to Hospital parent leaflet.
“We created the top tips by using up to date research and spending time talking to groups of parents across Liverpool about the important things to include. The leaflet is a key part of the Children Coming to Hospital resource as parents have an important role in play in supporting their child through a procedure.“
