Ongoing collaborative projects

Post-intensive care syndrome in families (PICS-F study)

We are collaborating with Dr. Mary Hartman from Washington University in St. Louis to find out more about parent mental health after a child’s admission to the pediatric intensive care unit. This study asks parents to fill out surveys delivered via mobile phone text messages to determine if this method can be used for screening for anxiety, depression, and stress.
