This infographic was designed for a health study and pilot program run by Dr. Kimberley Widger of the University of Toronto and Dr. Adam Rapoport of Sick Kids Hospital. The study, Education in Palliative and End-of-Life Care for Pediatrics (EPEC®-Pediatrics), found better ways to train pediatric oncology staff in palliative care. Obviously this being a very sensitive topic (one no parent hopes they ever have to deal with), I tried to strike a balance between the serious nature of the topic and a set of gentle illustrations reminiscent of children’s books.
The information was grouped in three distinct ways: an introduction and overview, on the left, a timeline which follows the north side of the river, grouped quotes from both families and practitioners along the south side of the river, and the project’s goals and results in the right-hand panel. The piece was designed to be printed as three 8.5″ x 11″ panels in a brochure with a Z-fold, to fit in a letter-sized envelope. The client was very happy with the piece.
