Abstract

Objective: Psychosocial issues associated with craniofacial diagnoses and the ongoing burden of care can impact the quality of life of patients and families, as well as treatment adherence and outcomes. Utilizing available literature and clinical expertise across six centers, the present paper summarizes key psychosocial issues for the benefit of non-mental health medical providers and offers suggestions as to how all members of craniofacial teams can promote positive psychosocial outcomes.
