Cancer is one of the main causes of death in children and adolescent in Iceland. Each year about 12-14 children under 18 years of age are diagnosed with cancer; which is similar ratio as in other western countries. Families of children with cancer need to adapt to the health situation of their child; however, it is unknown how Icelandic nurses can intervene with these families in order to foster parents well-being. The purpose of the research was to study the impact of educational and family support (as an nursing intervention) on parents well-being. The Resiliency Model of Family Stress, Adjustment and Adaptation (McCubbin & McCubbin, 1993; 1996) along with Wright's and Leahey's Family Nursing Intervention Model (2000) were the conceptual frameworks for the study. Twenty-six Icelandic families (mothers and fathers) of children 18 years and younger participated in the study. Data was collected at three time points over 2 year period (from 1999-2001); twice before the intervention and once after the intervention. The intervention consisted of one support interview for each family; two hour lecture for this group of parents about cancer and it's possible effect on the family; and an interactive home page, that was developed on the web, for the parents . Study results will be introduced and discussion of findings for both future research and practice will be presented.
