Abstract

The Child Report of Psychosocial Care Scale was used to measure children's satisfaction with health care received, need for information and support and seizure-related concerns and fears in children with new-onset seizures. The sample of 63 children (33 girls and 30 boys), 8-14 years, completed the scale two times, 3 months and 6 months after their first seizure. Results indicated that children need the most nursing care in two areas: information related to the seizure condition, especially managing their condition, and support, in the form of talking to other children with seizures. The scale provides direction for tailored nursing interventions that will meet the specific needs of children with seizures for information and support.
