FINPEDMED Picture Cards have been designed to be used by investigators to help pediatric clinical trial participants understand the content of patient information.
Picture Cards can also be used in normal clinical practice and therapy situations. Illustrative material is used to aid the understanding when the content of the written patient information is difficult to understand due to low developmental level or medical disorders. Furthermore, the cards may be beneficial also with guardians who have difficulties with language skills or due to lack of experience.
A group of experts designed the Picture Cards in 2009. The Picture Cards are available in electronic and secured PDF-format in size A6. Pictures present different drug formulations, administration methods, basic medical examination situations, different additional examinations and procedures, and pictures depicting time, visits to the hospital, the hospital environment and trial documents. Five new Picture Cards of various medical procedures will be available during the year 2022.
The topics (names) of all picture cards are available in separate explanatory backside cards with names in Finnish, Swedish and English.
