Small Children, Tiny Voices? The Inequalities Young Children Can Face During Healthcare Procedure

18th May 2018, 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine

How do we ensure that children are heard in a hospital setting without being overshadowed by the ‘bigger’ voices of parents and health professionals? How can we address the inequalities that some children face?

Using creative methods and activities this workshop aims to explore how health care services and staff can facilitate children to participate in important discussions and decisions about procedures. By analysing real healthcare scenarios and situations this workshop will highlight when and why certain actions, omissions and behaviours during the procedure may influence a child’s ability to express their opinions and choices.
