Abstract [en]

Background

A prenatal diagnosis of a congenital heart defect in the fetus is a traumatic life event for pregnant women and their partners. Previous research indicates a need for research that takes steps to support these individuals following the diagnosis. Patient and public involvement is a proposed method of identifying relevant research topics, leading to patient-focused research protocols and relevant support interventions.The overarching aim of this study was to gain insights into relevant future research topics among persons faced with a prenatal diagnosis of congenital heart defect in the fetus.

Methods

One group of parents to prenatally diagnosed children with a congenital heart defect (n = 5) and one group of individuals with experience of termination of a pregnancy following a prenatal diagnosis of a congenital heart defect (n = 5) were purposefully recruited. Each group of representatives was involved in a face-to-face focus group discussion, analyzed through qualitative content analysis.

Results

The representatives suggested a need for future research that addresses informational support in the forms as supplemental written information or follow-up consultations. Moreover, interventions that offer emotional support were suggested, in the forms of peer support or additional professional psychosocial support.

Conclusion

Several interventions were suggested by patient representatives, indicating a need for multiple intervention studies to be conducted in the context of a prenatal diagnosis of a congenital heart defect in the fetus. We recommend that future studies test supplemental written information, follow-up consultations, peer support, and additional professionals psychosocial support following the diagnosis.

Plain English summary

Ultrasound examinations during pregnancy have led to an increased number of detected heart defects in fetuses. Pregnant women and their partners are often unprepared for these news, and experience several difficulties following the diagnosis. We asked persons with personal experience to participate in group discussions about relevant future research topics. The discussions revealed that future research should investigate supplemental written information or follow-up appointments with health professionals. Researchers were also encouraged to focus their efforts on structures that offer emotional support. The emotional support could be from those that share similar experiences, or additional support from a health professional. The results of this study illustrate the need for researchers to continue their work to test ways to support persons faced with these diagnoses.
