Abstract

There have been significant advances in surgical, medical and nursing care for infants and children requiring cardiac surgery for Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) over the last three decades. This means that the number of adults known to have moderate and complex CHD is now in fact greater than the number of children with CHD. This article considers key issues for nurses in relation to the implications of (childhood) healthcare experiences for children and adults with CHD, and an understanding of the biopsychosocial impact of CHD on the individual and their families. It identifies the key issues and standards of care required in the UK (and world-wide) in the care of this unique group of patients.
