"HC And - Covid-19 vaccination" has been developed in collaboration between H.C. Andersen Children and Youth Hospital, Odense University Hospital and 10:30 Visual Communication.
HC And is patient information for children aged 4-7 years and aims to prepare and reduce anxiety in children for whom many hospital terms are completely unknown.
"HC And - Covid-19 vaccination" contains a Covid-19 vaccination course. The information is spoken - by a child's voice - and animation in the genre "Learning through play with tablet/mobile phone/touch screen".
Children in this age group learn and recognize through play and concrete information. HC And's stories reflect reality and are made up of short sequences at child's height, so that "newbies" can start here.
Hospital staff can use this material as an educational tool to create a common framework of understanding with the child.
The focus is on safety and communication at child height, so that the child can also acquire specific knowledge without the help of adults.
HC And can also be used as part of the post-treatment when you have returned home and your child needs to process his experiences again and again.
The app is free to download.
