Brighter with books: co-designing a reading intervention to improve emotional wellbeing in children with cancer.
Chief Investigator: A/Prof Amanda Hutchinson
Funding Amount: $97,389
Recipient: University of South Australia
Overview: Bibliotherapy has been a successful adjunct therapy to support adults with cancer and promises to be similarly advantageous in children. The challenge is how best to adapt current practices for children. We propose to work with families, health professionals, librarians, co-design specialists and teachers to co-design an informed bibliotherapy intervention.
