HHD 2349 - CHILD LIFE PRACTICE IN HOSPITALS
This seminar identifies important concepts and practices to working as child life specialists in medical/hospital settings. Given the complex interdisciplinary nature of the child life specialist's role, and the need for ongoing consultation and collaboration with a variety of professionals involved in a child's care, this course will cover a range of practical and professional topics. These topics include family coping strategies, hospital policies and practices (e.g. charting, notes, supervision, etc.), death and dying, medical terminology, and interdisciplinary consultation and communication. Students will gain an understanding of the theories and concepts underlying practices, the necessary and important day-to-day practices in hospital settings, and strategies for successful collaborations with medical professionals.
