Engaging Children & Youth in Artificial Intelligence in Paediatric Health care

Understanding the perspectives of young people and developing supports to meet their needs is crucial to an ethical, sustainable integration of AI into paediatric health care. SickKids innovators are taking the first step by reaching out to young people to understand what they know now, what they hope for and value, and what they are concerned about related to the use of AI in health care to help SickKids consider how we can better deliver AI-enabled care for paediatric patients. The goal of the project is to use this knowledge to create materials for education, enable consent and assent, and engage patients and families more meaningful in our work at SickKids.
