Parent Participation and Play Programs in Hospital Pediatrics in England, Sweden and Denmark.
This paper presents the findings from a trip to England, Denmark, Sweden, and Holland which was designed to investigate how hospitals in these countries facilitate children's healthy development during the stress of hospitalization. The areas specifically discussed are: (1) initiating and reinforcing family involvement; (2) meeting children's need for play; (3) adapting space, furnishings, and designs for parent and play programs; and (4) financing and publicizing programs. Information about the activities and functioning of government agencies, volunteer, and consumer advocate groups in each country are also included. (JMB)
