right in front of you is a handbook which hopefully will ease you to make the decision to organise a Teddy Bear Hospital in your university town. If you already made your decision this guideline should save you a lot of work and and problems as well.
We took many thoughts about the topics and layout of this guideline. Nevertheless, we surely can not claim for total perfection. Therefore we will be glad of any kind of criticism, improvement suggestions and of course praise.
The publisher thank all previous organisers of Teddy Bear Hospitals for their help with the origin of this handbook. Special thanks goes to Elizabeth Russe from the Teddy Bear Hospital in Innsbruck/Austria. Due to the detailed information and gained experience from Innsbruck tit was possible for us to develop this helpful guideline for organise Teddy Bear Hospitals.
