THE PROJECT IN SUMMARY
To evaluate the effects of creative activities on children/adolescents hospitalized with cancer
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To validate in Italian the Arts Observational Scale (ArtsObS), an instrument to evaluate the effects of creative activities on children/adolescents hospitalized with cancer
People working in this sector
ArtsObS is an instrument widely used in the Anglo Saxon world to evaluate the effects of creative activities observed in children in pediatric hospital settings. It is easy and quick to use and monitors long-term effects, enabling the collection of both quantitative and qualitative data. This project involves the observation of creative activities undertaken by LAD operators, both in person at WonderLAD and online (supported by AMI between 2015 and 2021) and the collection of data to be entered into an IT platform to enable subsequent elaboration. In the final phase of the project, the evaluated data will be disseminated via scientific publications and participation in conventions and conferences in pediatric oncology.
The creation of a web-doc is also foreseen for this project, an interactive and multimedia documentary easily accessed on the web using audiovisuals and graphics, 3D reconstructions and sound. The web-doc will open a window to the world of pediatric oncology, integrating personal experiences of life on the wards with useful information, scientific data and statistics, and the feedback of health professionals, all in an artistic narrative. It will enable access to information benefitting families facing cancer, especially those families that have had little or no access to information. The documentary will be made in Italian and other, widely-spoken languages
