Wei Manuscript Published in Journal Heart & Lung

Holly Wei, a doctoral candidate in the School of Nursing, has had one of her manuscripts for her dissertation accepted in the Journal Heart & Lung and the manuscript is already available e-pub ahead of press.

This manuscript presents her efforts to synthesize a very large body of research literature exploring the effects of having a child with a congenital heart condition in which surgery is necessary and the state of the science on how this experience affects the family. This very comprehensive synthesis was then used to design Holly’s qualitative dissertation study in which she attempted to answer the questions: why and what are the sources of stress for the family when surgery is required?

Congratulations, Holly!
