A part of the Child Life Specialist Role is to acknowledge culture and diversity among patients and families. This app provides opportunities for patients to describe their culture, but also have the opportunity to explore others to learn about the world beyond the healthcare setting.
Kids World Cultures is an important app for children and families to explore in order to learn and understand the diverse world we live in today. For the Child Life Specialist, this can help with guidance toward learning about how to support the child and family’s cultural experiences and incorporate them into their care, as well as adapt intervention design according to cultural related experiences. It is also beneficial for healthcare professionals in order to build cultural competency and build better rapport with children and families of different cultural backgrounds in order to improve quality of healthcare!
