Children’s HeartLink developed the Parent Education/Discharge Instructions (PEDI) materials to help educate caregivers and families on pre- and post-operative care for children with congenital heart disease. To share these materials as widely as possible, we will grant permission without charging any fees to translate or adapt our materials under the following conditions:

 

 

Please send us a PDF of your version of PEDI materials and indicate the city and country where it is being used. If you should translate any materials into different languages, we request you share the translation with us so that it may be added to the list of translations on the website. Contact emily@childrensheartlink.org.

 

Additionally, if possible, we kindly ask that those requesting these materials consider making a contribution to Children’s HeartLink to help sustain PEDI program development at www.childrensheartlink.org/donate.
