New Starlight Express Rooms
Starlight is currently constructing two new Starlight Express Rooms:
- In early 2011 the first ever Starlight Express Room in South Australia will open at the Women's and Children's.
- In December 2011 a new Starlight Express will open at the new Royal Children's Hospital in Victoria.
We are also currently finalising the design for the new Starlight Express Room at the new Queensland Children's Hospital.
The design of these new rooms has been guided by feedback from families, including a survey of almost 1,000 families who use the Starlight Express Rooms around Australia. Input has also been gathered through an observation study, face-to-face consultations, a literature review and program evaluations.
Needs Analysis Study
Starlight's current program strategy is based on a comprehensive needs analysis study. At the core of this year-long project was extensive consultation with almost 300 young people, parents and health professionals to understand the role Starlight plays in meeting their needs.
Club Ado Evaluation
Early in 2010 Starlight completed a formative evaluation of our Club Ado program. The results clearly identified the important role Club Ado plays in transforming the hospital experience for young people. The evaluation guided the development of a program logic model that will be used to expand Starlight's in-hospital programs for adolescents across Australia.
