Abstract:
FRAMEWORK: The analysis was be guided by Clarke-Steffen's Model of Family Transition to Living with Childhood Cancer; Strauss and Corbin's Trajectory Model; and Schumacher, Melies, and Chick's Nursing Model of Transitions. PURPOSE: This paper discusses the three other papers in the symposium, comparing and contrasting the results of the studies with the three frameworks, to increase our theoretical understanding of families' experiences across the continuum of pediatric cancer care. METHODS: The background, methods, and results of the three studies presented in the symposium are compared and contrasted with the relevant frameworks. RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS: Various theoretical models have been empirically derived to describe families' experiences overtime with childhood cancer, as well as with other chronic and life-threatening conditions. These models can all be implicitly or explicitly linked to Glaser and Strauss' formal theory of Status Passage and are helpful in conceptualizing the results of the studies presented in the symposium. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE AND RESEARCH: Children and their families encounter long term, overall issues and as well as the stage specific issues. Thus, attention to both dimensions increases the relevance of both nursing practice and research.
