The aim of this study was to explore parents experiences after their childs burn injury, focusing on how the burn had influenced family life and child adjustment. Six semi-structured interviews with parents of children treated at burn centers 2 to 7 years previously revealed the theme, "Feeling quite alone in striving to regain family wellbeing". Identification of difficulties perceived by the parents during rehabilitation and up until the present is useful when developing pediatric burn care and support for parents of children with burns.
