Problem: Children with cancer have limited resources in coping with painful procedures and hospitalizations. Guided imagery interventions in oncology have primarily focused on four areas: efficacy in pain management, influence on surgical outcomes, improvement in quality of life, and changes in immunity. However, the impact of time in treatment regimen has not been addressed. Conceptual Framework: Guided imagery addresses the connection between mind and body, as well as the facilitation of empowerment to help individuals manage difficulties in their lives. The purpose of this pilot study is: (1) to determine the feasibility of integrating a guided imagery intervention into the standard of care for pediatric oncology patients prior to diagnostic procedure(s), and (2) to gather preliminary data on the efficacy of a guided imagery intervention on pain scores and perception of procedural distress in pediatric oncology patients and their parents across the trajectory of their treatment. Methods: This mixed method description feasibility study will utilize a convenience sample of pediatric oncology patients and their parents (n = 30). All patients who are greater than 5 years of age undergoing a procedure in this clinical setting will be invited to participate in the pilot study, consisting of 5 pre-procedure and 15 daily guided imagery sessions. Data collection instruments include: FACES-R (pain scale), BASES-R (nurse report behavior scale), PPQ (parent perception of procedures), physiologic measures (heart rate and respiratory rate), child and adolescent journals, parent interviews, and health care staff focus groups. Analyses: Frequency, reliability and correlational analysis will be used for data analysis. Future Implications: If the guided imagery intervention is feasible and shows promise of being beneficial, this pilot study may be foundational for a larger, multi-site study. A potential outcome will be to offer guided imagery as a part of a comprehensive standard of care.
