Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This study examines the relationship between parent needs and their child’s quality of life (QoL) during the child’s cancer treatment, which is a critical period for families. A pilot survey study examined 11 parents of children undergoing cancer treatment. A statistically significant moderate correlation was found between emotional stability and overall QoL with parent needs. Results provide valuable insight for OT involvement because the parent’s needs can influence the child’s QoL during treatment.
