Abstract


This National Institute of Health Research project aims to test if children scheduled for anaesthesia benefit from an interactive online package. The project deals with the design and data capture (logs) of a prototype (alpha) online interactive cartoon created to answer the research question: “Will internet delivered information help children cope better with anaesthesia?” Following modification of the alpha package the resultant beta package will be compared to two control groups: standard care procedures and a non-medical computer game. An international academic audience provided positive feedback on the package design and data capture. The animation package sets an example of good practice in design for other similar healthcare scenarios.
