Health and Social Care Professionals

Helium Arts is committed to supporting an evidence base for arts interventions with children in healthcare settings.

These interventions to date have included the commissioning of a large-scale independent evaluation of our first artist in residence programme in four hospitals (SpiralOrchard, 2010), a systematic review of creative interventions for young people transitioning to adult healthcare (Callinan and Coyne, 2018) and a literature review looking at the effects of the arts on parent-infant relationships (Ní Bheoláin, forthcoming).

This Learning Bank will be updated regularly with resources, papers, podcasts, videos and interviews featuring healthcare professionals and academics exploring arts and health practice and related fields.
