Using videos to keep parents in the picture

People from remote areas in Scotland whose children are born prematurely can find it hard to come and visit them. The Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, where many of these babies begin their lives, has been trialling the use of video cameras which allow parents to keep up-to-date with their child’s progress from afar. The videos are made by a company called vCreate and the trial has been running for six or seven weeks on two babies. So far the parents have had a very positive response.

About John Gale

I work as a medical librarian in the Joint Education and Training (JET) library at Leighton Hospital, Crewe. I keep clinicians up to date with the latest research, help them to find the best information about treatment and train them to find - and assess - high-quality information for themselves. I also help doctors and nurses find and write high-quality information for patients.
