Abstract:

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

Purpose: The purposes of this study are to know the trend of family resilience in adolescents with cancer during the first year of newly diagnosed, and to examine the correlates of family resilience. 

Methods: The panel study is a family-based approach. Convenience sampling is used to recruit participants who are adolescents with newly diagnosed cancer and 12 to 20 years old. Additionally, participants include these cancer adolescents’ parents and a sibling who is also an adolescent. Data are repeatedly collected three times (after diagnosis 3 months, 6 months and 9 months) by a structured questionnaire. 

Results: The study participants included 33 families. The findings that were demonstrated by hierarchical linear regression analysis included: 1) family resilience did not change over time; 2) individual resilience of each family member was protectors of family resilience (γ = 0.30, p < .001); 3) perceived of stress was a risk factor of family resilience (γ = -0.27, p < .001); 4) family resilience was a correlate of family function (γ = 0.90, p < .001). The results that were identified by Generalized Estimating Equation(GEE) analysis included: 1) Neither family resilience nor individual resilience changed over time; 2) For parents, level of perceived stress at post-diagnosis 6 months was less than at post-diagnosis 3 months (for fathers, B = -0.18, p < .01; for mothers, B = -0.25, p < .05); 3) For sibling, level of perceived stress at post-diagnosis 9 months was less than at post-diagnosis 3 months (B = -0.27, p < .001); 4) For adolescents with cancer, level of perceived stress did not change over time.

Conclusion: These results suggest that healthcare professionals begin to foster the family resilience in adolescents about 3 months after diagnosis of cancer by strengthening resilience in each family member and managing their stress.
