Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Purpose: A randomized pilot study to evaluate the effects of movement, music, and art therapy on the quality of life (QOL) of children with brain tumors (BT) receiving chemotherapy. Data also were collected from a non-randomized arm and nurse focus groups. Rationale: Psychological trauma during chemotherapy may adversely affect QOL. Sample: Twenty-four newly diagnosed pediatric BT patients receiving outpatient chemotherapy were enrolled. The non-randomized arm included any patient in the infusion center. Nurse focus groups included providers from the infusion center. Methods: The study used a two group, repeated measures randomized design with the intervention group receiving CAT and the control group receiving a volunteer's attention. The PedsQL was used to measure QOL. The non-randomized arm measured emotional reactions before and after group CAT sessions in the infusion center. Nurse focus groups elicited qualitative data. Findings: Survey data will be analyzed by July 2007. Focus groups revealed themes such as improved patient mood and interaction as evidenced by "observed laughter;" "kids that aren't physically active moving around - happier to be [in the infusion center];" and "withdrawn [patients] seem to interact when I would not think they would - they do this when they would not do something else." Anecdotally, the response to CAT was overwhelmingly positive from patients, families, and providers, and prompted several large monetary donations to continue the project. Implications: With heightened interest in complementary therapy for children with cancer, future research with a larger sample size is needed to document the impact of incorporating creative arts into the healing process.
