Pediatric psychosocial care (PPC) is the culturally sensitive provision of psychological, social, and spiritual care through therapeutic communication. Accordingly, children should be encouraged to participate in their healthcare experiences, have access to developmentally appropriate healthcare education, be provided opportunities to play, and have safe, child-friendly environments in which to heal. Current evidence suggests that effective psychosocial care improves patients' health outcomes and quality of life.
As child development experts, we partner and collaborate with hospitals, clinics, and NGO’s, globally to enhance access to pediatric psychosocial care by providing knowledge exchange, staff education/training, service development, environmental design consultation, resource fostering, and research.
Our evidenced-based services are unique, in that they demonstrate cultural responsiveness, promote sustainable support systems, strengthen protective frameworks, and strive to improve healthcare experiences for children and families.
