Dr. Mariana Brussoni and her research team created Outsideplay.ca to help parents and communities reverse the trend that is limiting childrenâ€™s chances to play outside and take risks in play. Outsideplay.ca is designed to help users find a more balanced approach for them and their child through understanding the importance of risky play, working to manage the fear that can lead to setting too many limits, and building a plan of action for change.
Outsideplay.ca was a collaborative initiative between the University of British Columbia (UBC), BC Childrenâ€™s Hospital (BCCH), and the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit (BCIRPU). The project was led in partnership with Dr. Mariana Brussoniâ€™s Research Team and the BC Childrenâ€™s Hospital Strategy and Innovation Office (SIO) â€“ under the portfolio of the SIOâ€™s Digital Lab (SIOLAB). The project also involved consultation with a multi-disciplinary advisory group, as well as national and international partners.
