Today in our society there is a complexity of providing medical care to children. It is that parents often do not quite understand the complaints of children or do not realize the importance of providing them with early medical care. Babies arrive at the hospital in severe condition and subsequently stay on long-term treatment. All of these lead to the emergence of stress in children, fear of health workers and any medical manipulations. Researches of scientists and students of the Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University show that in such children, stress decreases immunity, reduces the tone and absorbs drugs worse, in particular antibiotics. And this, obviously, is not in the best interest of the tiny patient. It is at ''Teddy Bear Hospital'' that the goal is to overcome such barriers on the path to the happy, and most importantly, healthy life of the child.
Teddy Bear Hospital is being launched in many European countries. The initiators of the project gradually improve the communication of children with doctors through trainings and games. This project has long been active in Germany, Portugal, the Netherlands, Poland and many others.
The uniqueness and novelty of the project is that for the first time the release of the cartoon about the adventures of the bear is planned. Also established a stationary center — Teddy Bear Hospital on the basis of Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University.
During trainings and forums, medical students helped to understand the child's expectations during various medical manipulations and operations. Children had the opportunity to become physicians for a certain time, and make an injection the bear and carry out an operation using all the necessary medical instruments.
During the period of the project implementation it was possible to conduct 12 outbound and 2 city events "Teddy Bear Hospital".
Also managed to made the "Hospital for the Bear" in the Bastion fortress gallery and the "My Child" Forum.
The project has been partly funded against the claimed amount. Procurement of bears and toy medical instruments was financed.
