NIHR Children and Young People MedTech Co-operative

March 2021 Newsletter

ADHD HERO ACTIVITY BOOK

The University of Sheffield and Lab4Living have been working together to co-design a psychoeducational ‘Activity Booklet’ to help primary aged young people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) learn about and manage their condition. Whilst psychoeducation interventions are recognised as being potentially beneficial for this group and recommended by UK clinical guidelines, there is little age-appropriate material currently available.
 
Children and young people with ADHD, their parents and clinicians, have been central to the project throughout; from identifying the unmet need, to co-creating the content of the booklet, to testing and developing initial prototypes. Families initially attended group workshops, followed by one-to-one online sessions in response to the pandemic. Both methods emphasised creativity, fun and asset-based approaches.
The booklet has now been adopted by several schools in Wakefield, one charity in Sheffield, and eight NHS Trusts, with further interest nationally.
 
NIHR CYPMedTech is very pleased to be joining the team, where next steps
include exploring opportunities to develop a web-based or app-based version of the booklet, as well as exploring the applicability of the approach to other contexts and conditions such as Autism.

CHILD HEALTH TECHNOLOGY 2021
An overview of the topics covered during CHT2021

Thank you once again to everyone who participated in and supported Child Health Technology 2021 – the first conference of its kind dedicated to paediatric medical technology – which took place on 2-5 March 2021.

The online format enabled participation from the global paediatric medtech community, and facilitated an exciting blend of presentations, live chat and live Q&A, as well as ‘On Demand’ content including poster presentations, the Innovation Partnership Zone, and links to our sponsors. Above all, the conference demonstrated that child health technology truly is a dynamic and important area for innovation.

We were joined by 238 participants from 16 countries. Over four days we enjoyed 10 keynote presentations, 14 seminars, 16 oral abstract presentations, and 4 technology demonstrations, all covering a diverse range of contexts and technologies. Please follow the link below for summaries of each day, and the reflections of NIHR CYPMedTech Director, Professor Paul Dimitri.
 
CHT2021 would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our Sheffield, UK teams; NIHR CYP MedTech, Marketing Sheffield, Events Management Direct, and TechNative solutions, as well as the support of our sponsors.

CHILD HEALTH TECHNOLOGY 2022

We invite you to ‘save the date’ for CHT2022, which is taking place on 11-12 May 2022. We hope to see you there!

COLLABORATION REQUESTS

Please complete our collaboration request form if you would like to collaborate with us. We are keen to hear about:

  • Unmet needs i.e. things which make day-to-day living difficult for children and young people with long-term health conditions or a problem in a health care setting that does not currently have a solution. You do not need to know how to solve the problem; and
  • Innovations in response to unmet needs. We focus on early stage technology development (Technology Readiness Levels 1 – 3) but will consider technology at later stages on a case by case basis.
Please read and consider the support we can offer, our frequently asked questions, and our collaboration request guidance before completing our collaboration request form.
