Self-Management in Parents of Technology-Dependent Children

Parent caregivers of children with chronic conditions who require life-saving technology such as mechanical ventilation or feeding tubes must maintain a high level of vigilance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They usually provide a majority of their children's care and are often overwhelmed by the caregiving demands thus neglect health promotion behaviors that result in a deterioration of their own mental and physical health. The goal of this study is to test a cognitive-behavioral resourcefulness intervention that will improve these caregivers' mental and physical health and health promotion behaviors while they continue to provide vital care for these vulnerable children.
