Vol­un­teers needed for anx­i­ety study

Canning Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

PAR­TIC­I­PANTS are needed for an ECU study in­ves­ti­gat­ing sources of anx­i­ety for chil­dren with cancer who spend time in hos­pi­tal.

The re­search team is in­ter­ested in de­vel­op­ing sup­port­ive ther­a­pies that would aid men­tal health care and build re­silience for child cancer pa­tients.

Par­tic­i­pants needed in­clude chil­dren cur­rently aged 12 to 16 years who were ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal for any rea­son for one week or more when they were aged eight to 15 years, peo­ple cur­rently aged 12 to 21 years who have or have re­cov­ered from cancer and been ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal for one week or more when they were aged eight to 15 years, or par­ents and guardians of chil­dren who have or have re­cov­ered from cancer and been ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal for one week or more when they were aged eight to 15 years. Par­tic­i­pants would take part in an hour-long semi-struc­tured au­dio-recorded in­ter­view with re­searchers, and can with­draw from the study at any time.
