Abstract: The purpose of the study was to survey, by means of a questionnaire, the director and/or staff members of hospital play programs in the United States to ascertain information for developing a curriculum model for preparation of hospital playroom personnel. The questionnaire was designed to assess the educational background and training preferred for this position. Information was also collected regarding responsibilities of personnel, policies, and play activities in hospitals. Questionnaires were mailed to hospital playroom directors listed in the directory of the Association for the Care of Children in Hospitals. Of the 172 questionnaires distributed, 122 (72%) were returned to the investigator. Since the survey was conducted using a total population, rather than a random sample, percentage analysis was the technique used to analyze the data. The results of the data were discussed on the descriptive level.
