Survey of Parents Whose Child May Need Elective Surgery
Parents' Concerns About their Child's Elective Surgery During COVID-19 Pandemic
This study enrolls parents whose child may need elective surgery. This study surveys parents who are bringing their child to a UBMD surgical clinic about their concerns about potentially having their child have elective surgery.
Over the last 8 months, many parents have decided against appropriate surgery for their children without giving a specific reason, apart from "the pandemic". We would like to find out their specific concerns. We have developed a short survey. This may help us learn about concerns and how to address them or how to educate parents about to the actual risks and so has potential to improve pediatric medical care during the current pandemic. Study takes place at UBMD in Buffalo, NY.
The goal of this project is to determine the most common concerns parents have regarding their child's surgery in the context of COVID-19.
Parent or guardian of pediatric otolaryngology patients at UBMD, who are children aged 0 to 18 years
