Contributor Melles, M. (mentor) Cuijpers, C.F. (mentor) Lakerveld, M. (mentor) Faculty Industrial Design Engineering Department Industrial Design Programme Master of Science Design for Interaction Date 2013-09-06 Abstract The assignment of this graduation project was to investigate the current interaction strategies of the pediatric oncology nursing staff in challenging situations on the pediatric oncology unit. Which interaction problems exist on the pediatric oncology unit? And which interaction strategies between the pediatric oncology nursing staff and patients and their parents can be identified? The goal of this project was to define design opportunities for supporting the pediatric oncology nursing staff in these challenging situations. An overview is created for designers where pediatric oncology nursing staff can be supported in dealing with the interaction problems with patients and their parents. These supporting designs can help the pediatric nursing staff to interact with patients and their parents in such a way that the child feels safe physically and emotionally. This will foster the curing process.
