As part of the care provided at the Pediatric Oncology Branch of the National Cancer Institute, a wide range of support services are offered to patients and their families. These services are designed to address the social, psychological, emotional, and practical facets of pediatric cancer and to support patients and families while they are enrolled in clinical research protocols.
Research is another critical component of the psychosocial program.
Examples of some current research initiatives include:
Pilot Study of Educational Interventions in Pediatric Hematopoietic Stem Cell Donors to Increase Donation and Transplantation Procedure Knowledge
An Exploratory Study of the Use of Five Wishes as a Tool for Advanced Care Planning in Adolescents and Young Adults with High Risk Cancer and HIV Disease
Parental permission and adolescent assent and decision making in clinical research
A Multi-Institutional Pilot Study of the Perceptions of Support and Perceived Stress of Lone Parents of Children with Cancer
