15 STEPS CHALLENGE

15 STEPS CHALLENGE

BAYouth members completed the 15 Steps Challenge at Morriston Paediatric Outpatients department this morning, the purpose of which is to gain a young person’s perspective and find out what children and young people want when they stay in hospital.

This involves looking around a ward and making notes on what is working well for children and young people who are patients -  as well as their families - whilst making suggestions as to what could be improved.

For example:

• Are there adequate age-appropriate play facilities?
• Is the area decorated appropriately for all children/young people?
• Are staff speaking to children/young people in a manner they can understand?
• Is there a play specialist on duty at any time?

The BAYouth members who took part enjoyed the experience and their findings will be shared shortly.
