AbstractThis study attempts to identify the incidence and specific sources of anxiety in the parents of children admitted to hospital for elective surgery, to isolate factors associated with increased anxiety and to identify useful ameliorative measures. One hundred parents were interviewed and completed a questionnaire before their child's surgery. Parental anxiety levels were measured using the Leeds scale for self-assessment of anxiety. Anxiety-related illness was identified in 47% of parents, who were significantly more concerned than others about all aspects of their children's hospitalisation. No factors were identified which could predict which parents were at high risk of developing an anxiety state. When questioned about educational and interventional measures which they felt would be reassuring, the same factors were identified by 'anxious' and 'non-anxious' parents. As all parents agree on useful ameliorative factors, a general advice and education programme would be appropriate.
