Although recent guidelines do not specifically address this issue, according to these more aggressive clinical and histologic characteristics by the time of diagnosis, we consider that screenin...

CONCLUSIONS: Psychological therapy may improve parenting behavior among parents of children with cancer, chronic pain, diabetes, and traumatic brain injury. We also found beneficial effects of psychological therapy may also improve parent mental health among parents of children with cancer and chronic pain. CBT and PST may improve parenting behavior. PST may also improve parent mental health. However, the quality of evidence is generally low and there are insufficient data to evaluate most outcomes. Our findings could change as new studies are conducted. PMID: 30883665 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
