The #DreamDoctors Project is proud to announce that "#DisasterZones – Should we be #Clowning Around?", a #research study by Dr. Uri Ilan, was published in a recent issue of the European #Journal of #Pediatrics.
Dr. Ilan served side-by-side with Dream Doctors #medicalclowns in the #IDF Field & Hospital in #Nepal after the devastating #earthquake in 2015. His study on their work found that "medical clowns have an important role in helping patients cope with their pain and distress." Mazel tov to Dr. Ilan and his research team!
The abstract can be found on our website:
#DreamDoctors#medicalclowns don't just work with children. For the last few years they have also been in the #Maternity Wards of 4 #hospitals across #Israel where they are valuable members of the mutidisciplinary treatment teams.
