Family-centered pediatric psychosocial care in Qatar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Pediatric psychosocial care approaches are used to advocate for family and child strength and durability in health scenarios and to improve the overall well-being of children impacted by severe medical situations. This article focuses on family-focused care in pediatric psychosocial services in Qatar. Using secondary sources, this desk review advocates for a family-centered care approach to support hospitalized children, their families, and the healthcare provision team in pediatric psychosocial care. It argues that if improvements are made to four main areas including education and training, healthcare environment, financial support and advocacy, and future research and audits, Qatar’s pediatric psychosocial care program would more effectively cater to evidence-based child and family-friendly approaches. This article concludes by providing policy recommendations for Qatar’s pediatric psychosocial care provision.
