Paediatric Brain Tumour Information & Support

Welcome to the Brain Tumour Ireland Paediatric website.

This is a community where you can find information and support for children, parents and siblings of those affected.

Dublin City University’s School of Nursing, Psychotherapy and Community Health is collaborating with Children in Hospital Ireland on a study to identify parents’ experiences of restricted visiting during their child’s hospital admission during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

They are aiming to understand parental experiences of restricted visiting during their child’s (0-18 years) hospitalisation at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ireland, and to understand the impact these restrictions had on the parents themselves, on their child who was hospitalised and on their extended family (including siblings).

We encourage any families who might have been impacted during the Covid-19 Pandemic to take this short survey.  It will take 10-15 minutes to complete and you can access it here.
