Drawing to Aid Recovery and Survival
This paper considers the role of drawn visual communication materials and their effectiveness as a means of obtaining informed consent. The researchers used practice based ‘action research’ as a means of working with clinicians at the Liver Transplant Unit, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, UK, in the preparation of materials (in this case picture storybooks) leading to medical surgery. The researchers’ approach was designed to match the needs of the hospital and the nature of the investigation.
