Improving Quality of Life of Children With Cancer Through Psychosocial Screening and Improved Communication in Health Care Providers
In Canada, approximately 1450 children are diagnosed with cancer annually. Diagnosis of
childhood cancer and its aggressive treatment can have devastating psychosocial effects on
the whole family (e.g. unpleasant feelings or emotions that impact your daily activities).
It is not known whether health care providers who treat these children use and value
psychosocial tools or how beneficial the use of these tools is for these families. This
research team will test the benefits of using psychosocial screening on the quality of life
of treated children, parents and siblings.
