In their study, entitled, “Experiences of Financial Stress and Supports in Caregivers During Pediatric Hospital Admission,” Nadarajah et al interviewed caregivers of children admitted to a pediatric hospital and conducted qualitative analyses to assess financial needs, health related financial barriers, and opportunities for improved financial support systems for families of hospitalized children. Reported themes included the acute financial stressors of hospitalization, ongoing barriers to accessing financial supports, and opportunities for health care systems to mitigate these barriers. The strengths of this study included its incorporation of diverse parent perspectives on what can be a sensitive topic. The authors included multilingual respondents and assessed not only challenges but also potential patient- and family-centered solutions. Although respondents may have been subject to social desirability bias, the authors reported a range of perspectives and insights.
