The Parent Report of Psychosocial Care was developed to address the concerns, needs for care and satisfaction with care received of parents of children with new-onset seizures. Parents were interviewed three months and six months after their child's first seizures using the instrument. Mothers especially identified continued needs for information and support and were worried about unlikely events such as brain tumors and death. The results from this study indicate that parents' needs for information and support need to be assessed at every encounter with the health care system during the first 6 months after the child's first seizure.
