HealthCare Clowning Research & Literature


Research & Development of all aspects of Healthcare Clowning
is important in our federation and to its members.

efhco has an own active working group, where all interested efhco members + interested non-members + international scientific researchers are sharing their research results, developing and coordinating studies.

During 2021 our efhco R&D working group developed their     Mission Statement, underlining the importance and pivotal role       of Research & Development for Clowning Work in the different Healthcare environments we are active.


Healthcare Clowing in hospitals, care institutions for all ages, hospices or working with other vulnerable people is a growing movement around the globe - we are very happy about all those initiatives bringing laughter to the young, to families and elderly.
efhco collects since its foundation scientific studies, articles and any other R&D  documentation about clown doctoring.
