Abstract:

Poster presented on: Thursday, July 25, 2013, Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Purpose: the purpose of the study is to gain more in depth understanding of the coping strategies of Lebanese parents with a child with cancer

Methods: the study followed purposeful sampling and saturation principles in which 12 parents (mother or father) of a child were interviewed. Data were analyzed following the Utrecht School of phenomenology.

Results: Five core themes emerged from the data describing the coping strategies of Lebanese parents with a child with cancer:  the Communication style; couple’s relationship; social / family support; dependence on God and sibling’s reactions.

Conclusion: these results cannot be directly generalized, but they could act as a basis for additional research on which to base a development of a structure for an approach to care that endorses coping processes in Lebanese parents with a child with cancer

nursing and medical staff need to be conscious of parents’ coping strategies and its impact on the interaction process between the family and the health care team and the family dynamics.
