- Acutely Sick Kid Safety-net Review and Analysis (ASK SaRA): The aim of this project was to identify the effectiveness of information resources to help parents decide when to seek medical care for an acutely sick child under 5 years of age, including the identification of factors influencing effectiveness, by systematically reviewing the literature (Neill, Roland et al. 2015). Professor Sarah Neill, Dr Jane Peters and Anna Chick are currently being updating this review to include digital interventions.
- Acutely Sick Kid Parent Information Project (ASK PIP): This project aimed to identify parent’s and health care professional’s use of information resources during decision making in acute childhood illness at home (Jones, Neill et al. 2013, Jones, Neill et al. 2014, Neill, Jones et al. 2014, Neill, Jones et al. 2016).
- Acutely Sick Kid Safety-netting Intervention Development (ASK SID): The purpose of this project was to identify the content, presentation and delivery methods for an information resource to help parents decide when to seek help for a sick child.
- Acutely Sick Kid Parent Education and Training resource (ASK PETra): The purpose of this project was to develop the specific content to be included within the safety netting intervention tool for the parents and carers of an acutely ill child.
- Acutely Sick Kid Video Capture (ASK ViC): This ongoing project is capturing video of sick children presenting to accident and emergency departments. These videos are then edited into short clips for embedding into the safety netting tool.
- Acutely Sick Kid iPoorly app development: This is an ongoing project to develop a prototype app and gather proof of concept data prior to seeking funding to sustain and spread adoption across the NHS.
