They will discuss the key steps taken, such as workshops, wireframing and user feedback, and also reflect upon how they ensured the voice of the patients and carers was at the heart of the process. myTube was developed in collaboration with Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN).

3.50 – 4.20          Creating a Virtual Patient Guide
Dom Raban - Managing Director, Corporation Pop

In 2011 Dom’s 13 year old daughter, Issy, was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer called Ewings Sarcoma.  Her treatment was characterised by two polar opposites. On the one hand she had fantastic clinical care (contributing to her recently celebrating 5 years cancer-free) but on the other she received very little prior information about the people she would meet, the hospital environments she would be treated in or the technology and processes that would be used to treat her.

In his talk Dom will share the journey that led him to start developing an app that uses augmented reality, gamification and artificial intelligence to deliver health information directly to children. He’ll talk about the hurdles and highlights of raising funding for the project and he’ll demonstrate how he believes the app will help to reduce the stress and anxiety associated with hospitalisation and improve the health literacy of children.

4.20 – 4.30           Sum up and close
