Preparation in this context means helping children prepare emotionally before treatment or surgery by explaining what these procedures involve. The picture book is designed to be used with children being prepped for surgery. In addition to illustrative scenes presented as bird's eye views, everything the child will see while awake is also drawn to present the world of the hospital from the patient's viewpoint. This book not only helps adults explain the situation literally from the viewpoint of the child, but also emphasizes the importance of reassuring and calming the patient. In order to accurately illustrate the different points of view presented, the book was created using three-dimensional CG technology. The effectiveness of this method was demonstrated in experiments conducted using an operational analysis system. The results have been presented to a number of groups, including at the 37th Japanese Nursing Society Conference (pediatric nurses) in 2006.
