The Power of Play

Microsoft Canada and Children’s Miracle Network is allowing young hospital patients to stay connected with the outside world like never before.

In September, BC Children’s Hospital launched the Child Life Interactive Computers for Kids (CLICK) program. Aiming to create a sense of normalcy for children who experience lengthy hospital stays, the CLICK program is designed to provide access to bedside connectivity. Through interactive technology the program helps to reduce anxiety, improve mobility and creates an environment of fun and learning.

Nathan Mitchell, 10, has spent the past four months at BC Children’s Hospital receiving treatment for cancer. He recently tested out some of the technology purchased for the hospital through the CLICK Program – including laptops, Windows Tablets and Xbox One. Nathan says he’s grateful to Microsoft Canada.
