Abstract

The focus of children’s healthcare literature has been the delivery of services to children and their parents, little attention has been paid to how children cope with receiving such care. In this paper we use a literature scoping method to bring together the literature on how medical talk can engage or isolate children, consider the environmental factors which can help children to be engaged and discuss an ethical symmetry approach. We propose that an ethical symmetry approach would provide a framework for healthcare teams to explore how to optimize children’s engagement with their healthcare.
