Tired of endless math problems, sciences projects and reading poems you’ll never understand ? Are you a sibling (age 8-18) of a child who’s had surgery? If so, you are perfect for our pilot study that deal with anxiety, depression and stress in siblings. For more information please email siblingsurgerystudy@gmail.com ... See MoreSee Less

Hi NKF Families! We need your help!

We are currently conducting a study looking at the impact of surgery on the siblings (age 8-18) of pediatric patients at the Stollery Children's Hospital. We are trying to determine if the siblings of patients who have had any type of surgery have higher instances and severity anxiety and/or symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder compared to others their age. Joining the study is entirely voluntary! It will take them approximately a half hour to complete. I have attached the poster for the study that has the email address on it that you can reach out to if you would like more information or would like to join the study. If joining the study, our coordinator will then arrange a time to meet and explain the study, obtain consent from you and the sibling(s), collect some demographic information and to provide the links to the surveys for the sibling(s). All surveys are anonymous and can be completed and submitted securely online. The study is open to any siblings, between the ages of 8-18, of a child who have had any type of surgery at the Stollery Children's Hospital! For more information, please email siblingsurgerystudy@gmail.com. Please pass this information on to any Stollery families that you think might be interested! Thanks so much!
