iSupport are an international group of health professionals, academics, young people, parents, child rights specialists, psychologists and youth workers who are all passionate about the health and wellbeing of children, especially when they interact with healthcare services.
The group is made up of over 50 members from around the world.
iSupport have been working together throughout 2021 to develop standards for children and young people (aged 0-18 years) undergoing clinical procedures, based on internationally agreed children’s rights set out by the UNCRC (1989). The standards aim to ensure that the short and long-term physical, emotional and psychological well-being of children and young people are of central importance in any decision-making for procedures or procedural practice.
The standards have been developed through ongoing and extensive consultation within the collaborative group and with established youth and parent forums. iSupport have also sought wider feedback, input and consensus through an international online survey.

iSupport are inviting you to share your views about the rights-based standards to help us work out if they are useful for children, parents and professionals and if there is anything that needs to change.
