SOUZA, Tamara Santos de  e  GABARRA, Letícia Macedo. Care for adolescents with cancer from the perspective of the multidisciplinary team. Mudanças [online]. 2019, vol.27, n.1, pp. 37-44. ISSN 0104-3269.

Teenage cancer disease presents biopsychosocial specificities, which poses challenges to the team in the provision of quality care. Therefore, this study aimed to understand the experience of care for adolescents with cancer, from the perspective of the multiprofessional team of an adult Onco-Hematology Service, of a general hospital in the south of the country, which serves adolescents from the age of fifteen. For that, semi-structured interviews were conducted with nine professionals who make up the multiprofessional team. The analysis was qualitative, through the content analysis method. The data were organized into four categories: specifics of adolescent care with cancer, feelings mobilized in health professionals, coping strategies used by the team, and challenges in care. From the results, it was identified that the care to the adolescent with cancer has significant emotional impact on the health professionals, requiring their technical and emotional investment.
