Children are at increased risk of behavioural and emotional problems following Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) hospitalization, with 25 % demonstrating ‘at risk' or clinically significant problems that remain unresolved at six months.
This is a multisite, mixed-methods prospective cohort study, examining children's psychological and behavioural responses over a three-year period post-PICU. This study aims to generate new information regarding the magnitude and duration of psychological and behavioral disturbances among children admitted to PICUs, potentially leading to remedial or preventive interventions.
This study takes place at two other Canadian pediatric hospitals in addition to the IWK Health Centre, The Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH) in Montreal, Quebec, and The Hospital for Sick Children (HSC) in Toronto, Ontario.
