TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Clinical trials are essential for advancing medical research, but they can be overwhelming, particularly for children and their families. Over the past decade, the number of procedures performed in a clinical trial has increased by 59 percent, further increasing the psychological burden on families. Innovations designed to support engagement and retention in trials are typically focused on adults and are not tailored for children.
Little Journey is on a mission to support all children to better health through personalized care. Every child is unique with different needs, concerns and ways of thinking; as such, the support provided to children must reflect these differences. In addition, for those participating in a clinical trial, the experience can span a number of years, include multiple procedures and visits to hospitals and involve continuous communication with hospitals.
Through the LEGO Foundation: Play for All accelerator, Little Journey has been working to enhance the emotional well-being support provided to children and their families using Learning through Play and Design for all principles. Little Journey has developed the innovative "A Little About Me" module that uses play to better understand each family's needs, communication preferences and emotional support requirements. This is then shared to empower the clinical and research teams to provide more tailored support to improve the trial experience, engagement and retention.
Attend this webinar to hear from a number of subject matter experts on how to understand and unlock the power of play and engage children and their families in pediatric clinical trials. Through personalized care, trust can be built, alleviate anxiety and enhance overall participant engagement.
Register for the live webinar taking place on Friday, September 22, 2023, at 1pm EDT (10am PDT) featuring Chris Evans, CEO & Co-Founder, Little Journey; Amir Lahav, ScD, Digital Health Innovation Advisor for Pharma & Medtech; Solomon Kamal-Uddin, MBBS, Dual Certificate Paediatric Consultant and Paediatric Emergency Medicine; and Leanne West, Innovation Catalyst, Patient Advocate, Connector, Chief Engineer Pediatric Technology Georgia Tech, President International Children's Advisory Network, Pediatric Innovation Catalyst Global Center for Medical Innovation.
