Summary:
A chronically ill child is financially, emotionally, and physically demanding on the family system. Although researchers have identified a plethora of risks, stressors, and needs of the families with a chronically ill child, there is a scarceness of evidence-based interventions in the existing literature. The purpose of the authors in this study was to critically analyze current treatment and identify the gaps in the available research.

Reviewer's comments on the document:
Findings of the research revealed that there is a lack of support for empirically tested interventions that can help parents, siblings, and families of chronically ill children.
