A parent’s cancer can have a significant impact on the lives of their children. This study seeks to understand how offspring are affected by their parent’s cancer.
This study is a survey for people who have a parent that has been diagnosed with cancer. The survey questions ask about positive emotion (such as joy, amusement, or hope) interacts with resilience (the ability to bounce back after a negative event) and post traumatic growth (positive change that occurs following a traumatic event). The survey should take between 15 and 20 mins to complete.Through this research, we hope to gather evidence to inform and promote support services for offspring facing a parent’s cancer.
This study has been granted through University of WA Human Research Ethics Committee.
