Research Projects

  1. Parents of Very Young Children with Congenital Heart Defects Report Good Quality of Life for Their Children and Families Regardless of Defect Severity


    Parents report a lower quality of life among girls, and lower family quality of life is associated with lower family income.

  2. The mental health of adolescents and pre-adolescents living with inherited arrhythmia syndromes: A systematic review of the literature


  3. Exercise Capacity and Self-Efficacy are Associated with Moderate-to-Vigorous Intensity Physical Activity in Children with Congenital Heart Disease


    Of 172 patients who were recruited, 137 (80%) had complete MVPA data and were included in the analysis.

  4. New concepts in the assessment of exercise capacity among children with congenital heart disease: Looking beyond heart function and mortality
