Abstract [en]

Objective

Children sustaining burns that require treatment in a burn center have a need for multiprofessional aftercare services over a prolonged time. So far, there is little research into satisfaction with care and support after pediatric burns. The aim was to investigate parents’ perception of support after pediatric burn and associations with parent, child and injury characteristics.

Method

Parents (n= 101) of children aged 0.4–17.8 years completed questionnaires on support, parent’s psychological symptoms and health of the child. Time since injury was 0.1–9.0 years.

Results

Perceived lack of psychosocial, medical, societal or family support was reported by 21% of the parents. Lack of support was not associated with injury or sociodemographic characteristics, but it was significantly associated with parents’ symptoms of general anxiety, depression and injury-related fear avoidance, as well as parents’ ratings of their child’s general health and heat sensitivity.

Conclusion

Perceived support did not differ on account of burn severity or sociodemographic status. However, care providers should be more attentive to and supportive of parents signaling poorer general health in their child and cognitive beliefs that the child is at risk for harm when active and parents who themselves show signs of psychological symptoms.
