A revolution is underway in health - a revolution where patients and health care professionals work together. Essential to achieving this mission in child health and simultaneously improving health outcomes is actively engaging patients and their families in health care decisions. Critical to family involvement in children's healthcare is ensuring that families can have access to essential, often complex health information. Our research group aims to develop and evaluate the usability of innovative information tools for parents with sick children. Parents will be actively involved in the development and evaluation of the tools. After the evaluation, these tools that have art at their foundation will be made widely available using digital and social media platforms.
Our mission is to conduct research that will provide the latest evidence, best practices, and user-friendly resources for parents with ill children.
