‘Teddy the guardian’
An interesting example of paying attention to imagery (personal appearance and possessions), and to what is normative and valued in a culture for a specific age group (children, in this case), among other things.
This helps to communicate the role of cute kid, as opposed to the patient role.
Relevant to imagery and the PASSING tool: If the teddy bear is owned a doctor or hospital, then it could be assessed under R145 image projection of miscellaneous aspects of a service. If the child or family owns it, then it would be R142 image-related personal possessions.
I imagine it also contributes to a child’s comfort level: much more fun to hug a bear than to be hooked up to machines!Tweet
