"HC And - MR scan" was developed in a collaboration between H.C. Andersen Children's and Youth Hospital, Odense University Hospital, hospitalized children and their families
and 10:30 Visual Communication.
HC And is patient information for children aged 4-7 years and aims to prepare and reduce the insecurity of children for whom many hospital concepts are completely unknown. "HC And - MR" does not relate to a specific diagnosis.
The information is with speak - of a children's voice - and animation in the genre "Learning through play with computer / tablet".
Children in this age group learn and recognize by play and concrete information. Hospitalized children can quickly become "filled up" with a lot of information. That's why HC And is made up of short child-height sequences, so "new" can start here.
The stories in HC Duck reflect the reality and the prescribed clinical guidelines. Hospital staff can use this material as an educational tool to create a common frame of understanding with the child.
The focus is on safety and communication at child's height, so that the child can also acquire specific knowledge himself without the help of adults. We encourage both parents and hospital staff to use the small preparation films in relation to and in line with children's needs for information and preparation.
HC Duck can also be used as part of the post-treatment when you have returned home and your child needs to process his experiences over and over again.
HC And's history of MR also exists in the app "HC And - X-ray Department" as well as in a version for settlement on PC / mac. In the computer version, it is part of HC And's large hospital universe, where you find several diagnostic and diagnostic courses. hcand.dk is freely available to everyone.
hcand.dk is constantly being developed - new stories will be added
and these will also be available for tablets / smartphones.
