Empowering you and your child.
Through age-appropriate voice and tone, Afi Health bridges the gap between children and their ailments, encouraging them to engage with their health through informed assent and self-assurance.
But why should we educate our kids about their health?
Children commonly report feeling afraid or anxious as they anticipate and engage in healthcare settings. Providing them with tools to better understand the circumstances will reduce stressors associated with uncertainty and confusion.
Ensuring that children and families have protocol information in an easy-to-understand, comprehensive manner, allows for better, more precise adherence to their respective protocol. Consequently, we can work towards better patient outcomes within pediatrics.
For those who are too young to give informed consent in medical situations, we must ensure that their power for assent is being promoted. Through educational resources for children, pediatric patients are given the agency to more confidently engage with their care and provide assent.
It’s their right
Although our resources meet several needs amongst pediatric patients, the most important problem we’re addressing is their right to information about their bodies. Children are constantly overlooked in their own care and left confused and uncertain. In today’s wave of democratized healthcare, this cannot be the case.
