The Curing Homesickness initiative will fund, thanks to their major partner Coles, a pilot program which will employ a Child Life Therapist at The Prince Charles Hospital’s Children’s Emergency Department and short stay unit for a period of two years. A Child Life Therapist will not only be beneficial for young patients at the hospital but also the families of children and the hospital staff.
Medical experts at The Prince Charles Hospital Children’s Emergency Department and the Caboolture Hospital are using Virtual Reality technology to make hospital visits less traumatic for children. The Virtual Reality headsets were purchased by The Common Good using funds from the National and its major partner, Coles. The initiative helps get kids home from hospital sooner by investing in vital funding needs such as innovative research, the latest equipment and amazing health professionals that provide care for sick kids.
