The formative evaluation of a psychosocial assessment framework for families of children who are seriously or chronically ill
MetadataShow full item record
The families of children who are seriously ill frequently experience distress that affects their ability to cope. A formative evaluation of a family psychosocial assessment framework was undertaken using mixed methods. The attitudes and perspectives of primary caregivers and healthcare providers regarding psychosocial assessment were examined. Rather than finalising a new screening instrument, a conceptual framework emerged to guide communication about psychosocial issues. The emergent conceptual model supports the implementation of a skilled-based practice intervention.
