Parenting a child with special healthcare needs can be difficult. Psychoeducation has been shown to significantly benefit parents. The purpose of this research is to test the feasibility of a web-based interactive e-health support resource. The resource is designed to provide education, knowledge and a way of connecting with other parents to help support parents in their role of parenting a special healthcare needs child.
If you are a parents of child with special health care needs; if your child is aged 0 to 18 years; and you have access to the internet on a computer and or smartphone then you are invited to participate in the study.
You will be asked to complete an pre-access eHealth questionnaire. This questionnaire will provide the researchers with some demographic information as well as some basic information about your current wellbeing. After you have completed the questionnaire, you will be granted a week’s access to the support resource to explore the content. After one week, you will be required to complete another questionnaire that will take approximately 30 minutes . In this questionnaire you will be asked to provide feedback on the the resource as well as provide some basic information about your wellbeing.
