The establishment of the National Association for Welfare of Children in Hospital marks a key point in the progression of ideas about the most appropriate ways to care for children in hospital.  It was preceded by research, a number of reports which documented the potentially stressful effects of hospitalization both for children and for their families (Darbyshire, 1993).
