It is a matter close to our hearts that parents are allowed to receive the diagnosis of trisomy 21 in the most sensitive and supportive way possible. The choice of words and the perspective taken by the medical professional have an enormous influence on how parents can experience and process the situation of receiving the diagnosis. We are aware that it is a great challenge to find the right words. The situation is also stressful for you, as a health professional.
For this reason, hope21 has developed a brochure especially for doctors and other medical professionals who accompany and support parents during the first period directly after the diagnosis has been communicated. It contains recommendations, suggestions and examples to help find the right words, to give parents support, to meet their individual needs and to support them on their way.
