Parenting Children with Chronic Physical and Psychological Conditions: A Conversation With Kelly Fradin
“Complex care typically refers to the children at the very tip, who are the sickest and the book is really written to be more, all inclusive, because many children, while they may not be complex, they have chronic health conditions which cause a lot of increased work for their families.”- Dr. Kelly Fradin
