Design a 1:1 medical play child life activity that can be delivered at bedside to a child/adolescent who is about to experience a medical procedure. You will choose and describe the medical procedure that you are working through with the patient. You will create a program outline for the activity and gather the materials required to facilitate the activity. When selecting your type of medical play, you may not use medical art or indirect medical play as these does not apply to learning about a medical procedure.
Resources and Restrictions: The participant is not to leave their bed during the program. They are allowed to hang their feet of the bed while sitting upright on the side of the bed. You must coordinate with your patient to ensure they have any supplies needed before the day of your program.
