Pre-Operative Preparation Program

Is your child coming to SickKids for surgery or a procedure under general anaesthesia?

Is your child three years or older?

Then consider attending the Preoperative Preparation Program.

This is a fun and educational individual program that helps children and their families prepare for general anaesthesia.

You and your child will meet with a Child Life Specialist (45 minutes) and a Preanaesthesia Nurse (45 minutes). This program includes information and interactive play for you and your child. Your child will have the opportunity to look at pictures and play with medical equipment. You will have an opportunity to ask questions to help prepare you and your child for his/her surgery or procedure.

We suggest that you bring your child one to two weeks prior to surgery or procedure.

Sessions occur:

Monday to Thursday from 11 to 12:30 p.m. Contact the Preoperative Preparation Program at 416-813-6216 to register.
