    Article - En anglais


    This study was conducted to determine whether a specialized form of nursing could help prevent or reduce psychosocial maladjustment among children, aged 4 to 16 years, with chronic physical disorders.

    In contrast to other studies, nurses were chosen to provide the intervention based on their central role in health care and the appropriateness of their training for this task.


    A clinical trial was conducted in which 332 children and their families were randomly assigned either to receive this specialized nursing for a 1-year period, or to remain in the control condition.

    The children were all active outpatients in nine clinics at the Montreal Children's Hospital.
