What? Why? Children in Hospital Conference 2016

The What? Why? Children in Hospital charity makes video clips that are suitable for children to help them and their parents prepare for visits to hospital. This can be a stressful time for children and their families and these videos answer some of their questions starting with the What and the Why?

The charity, in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland, are hosting a conference on 9th May 2016 in Edinburgh titled 'Preparing Families for Hospital and Improving Health Literacy. 

Presentations include:

  • Improving conmunication to provide person centred care to families
  • Health literacy projects supporting shared decision making
  • Practical support and information when a disabled child needs medical care
