Empowering Pediatric Patients as Active Partners with Clinicians and Caregivers in Managing Their Chronic Conditions
With the National Science Foundation grant, Sun Young Park, assistant professor in the School of Information and the Stamps School of Art and Design, will investigate and develop best practices for pediatric patients to be active partners in the management of their chronic conditions at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.
The 24-month investigation will apply design research methodology — including observation, interviews, and data synthesis — to create a rich, descriptive account of the barriers and practices around honest information sharing with children managing chronic conditions.
