Communicating with a child about their condition and helping them understand why they are in the hospital can be challenging at times. Phoenix Children’s user-friendly apps are designed to help caregivers communicate with their child and engage them in the healthcare process.

Phoenix Children’s values family-centered care. This means we care for your child as part of your family, and we tailor our care to meet your family’s needs.
We want to make sure that when you take your child home you understand your child’s condition, how to treat it, what problems to look for, and how to respond. We also want to make sure you know who to call if you have questions or concerns.
Specialized teams at Phoenix Children’s developed healthcare journey boards. Children and adults love its colorful, interactive gameboard style. Each colored box represents an important step in understanding your child’s healthcare journey.
This learning tool helps everyone talk about the basics. It’s a great way to begin and stay engaged throughout the healthcare journey. Every box on the Journey Board is something you may need to know about, such as, “I can tell you about my child’s medicines.”
