Starlight Express Rooms (SERs) provide a medical-free zone where children can escape from the hospital environment. Every three years, Starlight undertakes an evaluation of all nine SERs in Australia and in this Ignite session, we will share the story - and the learnings - of this review, highlighting how effective evaluation contributes to transforming the hospital experience of seriously ill children.We will share insights on the importance of stakeholder engagement, the challenges of capturing the voices of children and young people in a meaningful way (and yes, there will be a burping frog involved), and the effective dissemination of results.
