We present insights gleaned from a series of child-robot interaction experiments carried out in a hospital paediatric department. Our aim here is to share good practice in experimental design and lessons learned about the implementation of systems for social HRI with child users towards application in "the wild", rather than in tightly controlled and(More)

INTRODUCTION Before 1994, violence toward EMS personnel was informally recognized but was the subject of only limited scientific investigation. Confrontations with EMS personnel in the out-of-hospital workplace appear to involve verbal and physical assaults, injuries, disabilities, and mental stresses and often seem to go unreported. Without formal(More)
Social robots have the potential to provide support in a number of practical domains, such as learning and behaviour change. This potential is particularly relevant for children, who have proven receptive to interactions with social robots. To reach learning and therapeutic goals, a number of issues need to be investigated, notably the design of an(More)
This work describes the requirements that a robotic companion should have in order to properly provide support to diabetic children, in a hospital department. The paper will briefly introduce all the different needs that a diabetic child might have, and the difficulties she faces in the discovery and management of the disease. Starting from literature both(More)
In this paper we discuss how a motivationally autonomous robot, designed using the principles of embodied AI, provides a suitable approach to address individual differences of children interacting with a robot, without having to explicitly modify the system. We do this in the context of two pilot studies using Robin, a robot to support self-confidence in(More)
AIMS To compare the effects of liquid and tablet formulations of levothyroxine (L-T4) in 78 newborns with congenital hypothyroidism (CH). METHODS 39 patients received liquid L-T4 (group A) and 39 patients received tablets (group B). Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine (fT4) were measured and L-T4 dose recorded at onset of therapy and(More)

1. Nurses are inherent investigators through the use of observation, data gathering, and documentation techniques. 2. Occupational health nurses may be involved in assisting with or evaluating workplace accidents, injuries, and deaths. These investigations may be the only critical information gathered. 3. Accurate and through investigations are critical for(More)
