Hospitalisation

Medical Trauma

Visit the National Child Traumatic Stress Network for information on the psychological and physiological responses of children and their families to pain, injury, serious illness, medical procedures, and invasive or frightening treatment experiences.

 

Communicating with children

Children don’t understand the medical terms and abbreviations used in healthcare. The Phoenix Society compiled a guide on How Kids Hear Hospital Words to explain how differently some words can be perceived by children.
