MENEZES, Catarina Nívea Bezerra et al. Câncer infantil: organização familiar e doença. Rev. Mal-Estar Subj. [online]. 2007, vol.7, n.1, pp. 191-210. ISSN 1518-6148.

This bibliographic study investigates the psychosocial literature on experiences of families who have children and adolescents with childhood cancer, published in Brazil in last 10 years. It aims to overview the frame of what is being studied and published in this area, identifying possible gaps and trends. Data were collected through a bibliographic survey, by means of a non-systematic search of indexed articles and books. The publications were submitted to qualitative analysis, by grouping the findings considered relevant to guide the health team interventions. Results point towards increasing number of publications in this area, which shows that multiprofessional team needs to offer continuous support and information to help families to face most stressing situations, so that they can collaborate and participate actively in treatment.

Palavras-chave : childhood cancer; pediatric oncology; neoplasms; child; psychosocial care.
