Abstract

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to identify the different arts-based techniques being used in health-related research with children. DESIGN AND METHODS: A systematic survey of literature was conducted. RESULTS: Two hundred and ten articles were initially identified and reviewed. Of these, 116 met inclusion criteria of arts-based techniques in research with children 7-12 years of age. The different categories of techniques identified included (a) drawings, (b) photographs, (c) graphics, and (d) artifacts. Only 19% of the studies were health related. Further, 79% were conducted outside the United States, revealing that arts-based techniques appear to be underused by nurses and other healthcare researchers, especially in the United States. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: To ensure that children actively engage in research involving them, nurses can familiarize themselves with and advocate for the use of arts-based techniques.
