Parental cancer – characteristics of users of child‐centred counselling versus individual psycho‐oncological treatment

ConclusionsThe findings demonstrate that patients and partners self‐referring to PO or COSIP are highly burdened. COSIP users experience different psychosocial burden than PO users. As poor mental state of parents is a risk factor for the development of mental problems in children, parents using only PO may benefit from additional child‐centred support. Accordingly, the need for COSIP should be assessed continuously during PO of patients with children ≤21 years.

CONCLUSIONS: Heterogeneity across studies makes it difficult to draw firm conclusions regarding the effectiveness of psychosocial interventions for this population. There is an immediate need for rigorous trials with process evaluations and clearer, detailed intervention descriptions. Cost-effectiveness studies should be conducted alongside future trials.

We identified the frequency and causes of changes in sexual functioning among patients with cancer, and determined whether this change differed according to age, type of cancer, type of treatment, side effects of drugs, anxiety, depression, and perceived social support. The study was conducted with 192 patients with cancer. Data were collected using the data collection form which included questions about socio-demographic, disease-related characteristics as well as those related to changes in sexual functioning.
