Our nursing colleagues in Brazil developed an age-appropriate website for pre-school aged children requiring clean intermittent catheterization (CIC). The website includes illustrations along with 2D and 3D animation. Child-friendly characters demonstrate the assembly of materials needed during CIC, handwashing, hygiene of genitalia, and the catheterization technique for both males and females.
