Background There is little available information about what children and parents would like to know about a forthcoming hospitalization and what they currently receive. Methods The current study was a survey of 102 children between the ages of 6 and 10 years and their parents recruited either from the Recovery Unit following day surgery or from the wards following overnight admissions at Sydney Childrenâs Hospital, Australia. Information was obtained about each childâs experience in hospital, the nature and format of information that they had received prior to the admission, and what information the child/parent thought would be helpful to receive.
