MCoE Supporting Child Life Specialists with Edutainment
It’s not just fun and games when SCAL Child Life Specialists launch one of the apps on their iPads. Sometimes it is to educate a patient about their procedure and other times it is a distraction to enhance child and parent experiences.
KP Mobile Milestone and 5.2 Release
KP Mobile app team has been making an impact on our members with great feedback and hitting over 9,000,000 downloads! Version 5.2 has an impressive list of enhancements.
