The Emily Center at Phoenix Childrens Hospital presents Our Journey in the Hospital as a patient education tool to help families of a sick child identify what they need to know before taking their child home from the hospital. Parts of this app may also be used during a clinic or emergency room visit.When a child is in the hospital, parents can be overwhelmed by nurses and doctors rushing around, speaking medical jargon. Sometimes health care professionals think they are clearly communicating, but dont check to make sure you understand them. One way you can be sure you understand is if you are able to teach back their information in your own words. Our Journey in the Hospital app is designed to:- Be used from the time of admission, to help with conversations between families and the health care team while the child is in the hospital.- Help parents identify what they need to know before taking their child home safely.- Give parents a safe way to admit what they dont know or understand, and ask questions.- Cue families on what they need to teach back or demonstrate for their nurse or doctor. This gives the health care professional a chance to confirm information and skills and correct any misunderstandings.- Help families feel confident that they can safely care for their child at home after discharge from the hospital, know the signs of possible problems, and know how to respond. About The Emily Center at Phoenix Childrens HospitalFounded in 1990, the Center is named after Emily Anderson. Emily fought a rare form of leukemia for four years before losing her battle a few days before her seventh birthday. Frustrated by the lack of easy to understand information about Emilys illness, her parents founded The Emily Center so that families of sick children would always have access to pediatric health information that is accurate, easy to understand, and free of charge to Arizonas families.
