by Ward, Jessica Anne, Ph.D., Rush University, 2017, 117; 10611984
Abstract (Summary)

Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is potentially curative therapy offered to children with malignancy, immune deficiency, hemoglobinopathy, and metabolic disorders. The HSCT procedure may lead to morbidity and mortality, and is highly stressful for children and their parents. As a result, parents of children who undergo HSCT may be subject to adverse psychological and physical health outcomes. The purpose of this study was to understand parent stress responses, and determine the prevalence of adverse psychological and physical health outcomes in parents of children who received HSCT.
