Differences in Parental Caregiving Demands in Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia by Length of Infusion Therapy


OBJECTIVES:

- Compare the caregiving demands reported by parents of children with acute lymphoblastic
leukemia receiving methotrexate on 2 different infusion schedules (inpatient care vs
outpatient care).

- Compare the change in caregiving demands on these parents over time, in terms of
physical and emotional care, the need to make family arrangements, the need to
communicate about the child's care, the need to gather information about the child's
health status, and the effect on family well-being.

OUTLINE: Participants complete questionnaires regarding caregiver demands and family
information over 25-30 minutes within 3-4 months of the initiation of the child's treatment
and at the completion of the first year of the child's treatment.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 164 participants will be accrued for this study within 0.8
years.
