Life as a caregiver for a ill or injuried family member provides both rewards and challenges.

Early this summer, the University of Minnesota and the Ambit Network held a conference focused on assessing and caring for children and families experiencing traumatic stress.

Symptoms of traumatic stress from medical events can affect not only the pediatric patients, but their parents/caregivers as well.

With warm summer months and kids out of school, many hospitals and emergency rooms see an uptick in pediatric visits for accident related injuries. Most children will cope well with hospital visits and interactions with health care providers.

Parents sometimes find it challenging to help ill or injured child cope or recover.
