Communication Around the Prenatal Diagnosis of Complex Congenital Heart Disease

Dr. Harris is a pediatric physician in Hospice and Palliative Medicine and a T32 Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. As a physician-scientist in pediatric palliative care, she aims to investigate and help families cope with their emotional reaction to a prenatal diagnosis of complex congenital heart disease (cCHD) and the uncertainty it introduces. In this study, she will combine qualitative and quantitative methods focused on understanding both parent and provider perspectives, how they relate to each other, and how the parent-provider relationship impacts care and outcomes.
