Parents of children with congenital heart disease may benefit from psychosocial interventions, and these efforts may reduce the burden of parental mental health problems on child outcomes, according to results of a mixed-methods study published in The Journal of Pediatrics.
“The post-surgical recovery period for children with congenital heart disease is an incredibly stressful time for parents,” Erica Sood, PhD, pediatric psychologist at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children’s Nemours Cardiac Center, said in a press release. “This research helps us understand how we can deliver the psychosocial supports parents need during stressful hospitalizations and after hospital discharge.”
