|Take A Break Series|
Take a Break is a series of ten-public service announcements (PSAs) in English and Spanish, designed to enhance the programming that goes on in pediatric television channels. The Take a Break Series was generously funded by a grant from the enCourage Kids Foundation.
These three to five-minute infomercial segments are an entertaining way to educate pediatric patients and their families about different aspects of their hospitalization.
The Take a Break series explores ideas such as how to make your hospital room more comfortable, how to seek emotional support with other parents in the hospital, or just simply how to take time for fun. Some are humorous treatments of life in the hospital; some encourage relaxation and creative ways coping strategies for kids and parents.
The Take a Break PSAs have been developed by an interdisciplinary advisory committee, and have been produced in collaboration with pediatric patients and families.
The PSAs can be looped and played on their own between your daily programming, or they can be inserted whenever you need a pause within a specific program.
According to a study at Winnipeg Children's Hospital, a hospitalized child may watch up to twice as much television as his or her healthy counterpart. The Take a Break PSA series is a unique alternative to the fast paced commercial television and can provide the patients with useful information in a friendly manner.
