Young patients learn about treatments through play
Chicago Tribune, August 25, 2008
To lessen the terror that kids may feel before a scary procedure, some hospitals are incorporating "medical play" for them. Kids make puppets out of tongue depressors, they play a version of bingo in which O stands for nurses and N is for X-ray, and they put bandages on dolls. There are more than 400 such efforts in the United States and Canada, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
