Interventions to Support Integrated Psychological Care and Holistic Health Outcomes in Paediatrics
AbstractThere are strong calls from many national and international bodies for there to be a ‘holistic’ and integrated approach to the understanding and management of psychological and physical health needs.

They have shown to impact upon a wide range of outcomes, including psychological distress, pain, physical health, medication adherence, and family outcomes.
