As part of Children’s Week, Children’s Health Queensland is hosting a unique research event on Monday 23 and 24 October 2023 in the performance space on level 2 at Queensland Children’s Hospital (near the food court).

This event will include six fun and interactive activities for the whole family, and will give children, parents, and caregivers the opportunity to share experiences and perspectives on caring for children with a disability.

We understand that not all families will have time to visit, and some may not be able to easily get to QCH.  We STILL want to hear YOUR voice. So if you can’t make it to the Children’s Hospital on the 23rd and 24th of October, you can still have your say!

All the activities happening at QCH have been adapted to be available to complete online – simply click the link below to get started.

Online instructions

The link will take you to an information sheet and consent form. Once completed, you’ll be directed to an online survey to complete each activity.

Some activities are for parents, and some are for kids to complete. Participation in each activity is optional and can be skipped. Enter as much or as little information as you’d like, anything you write is helpful to us!

Some activities require uploading a drawing or voice recording. Specific instructions will be given at these points.

You can return to these activities to complete them at any time from the device you are using now.

If you have any feedback or questions, please get in touch via email to kidssleep@uq.edu.au.

This event is open to anyone who wishes to take part (voluntary) - you can do one or all the activities - whatever feels right for you.

This research event has been developed through a collaboration between clinicians at Children’s Health Queensland and researchers at the Child Health Research Centre and the Queensland Brain Institute, University of Queensland.

We acknowledge the support of our funding body the Life Course Centre for Research Excellence and our partners Children’s Health Queensland, The Children’s Hospital Foundation, Down syndrome Queensland and ARACY.
