  • Introduction to the special issue on palliative care, end-of-life, and
           bereavement: Integrating psychology into pediatric palliative care.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: While most pediatric palliative care (PPC) teams do not yet routinely include psychology, roles for pediatric psychologists in PPC are expanding. The goals of this Special Issue are to promote awareness of the breadth and depth of PPC, highlight the diverse and growing roles for psychologists as PPC clinicians, scientists, educators, and advocates, and showcase the latest interdisciplinary PPC research. Method: The nine articles in this collection describe key PPC concepts and research approaches, the value of the interdisciplinary team in PPC, the impact of child illness and child loss on caregivers, needs of grieving families, ethical challenges in PPC and at end-of-life, and disparities among underrepresented and historically marginalized populations. Results: The series of articles curated for this Special Issue illustrate the many contributions psychologists offer to the field of PPC. Conclusion: PPC-specific training and development of core competencies are necessary pathways to improve future integration of pediatric psychologists in pediatric care delivery, research, and advocacy.

  • Interdisciplinary symptom management in pediatric palliative care: A case
           report.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: Pediatric palliative care (PPC) services strive to prevent and relieve suffering among children, adolescents, and young adults with chronic and/or life-limiting illnesses. The current case report aims to illustrate the methods and effectiveness of an interdisciplinary palliative care team in symptom management of a 19-year-old Mexican American female with complex medical and psychosocial needs, including a history of labor trafficking. The patient, in leukemic remission at time of admission, required close collaboration of subspecialties including Psychology, Pediatric Advanced Care Team, Pain Team, Spiritual Care, and Rehabilitation to comprehensively address total pain. Method: Data were retrospectively extracted from the patient’s medical chart, including numerical pain ratings across time, relative hours of monthly service provision by interdisciplinary specialty, and timeline of medical interventions. Results: Results demonstrated a decrease in patient pain scores over time despite progression of physical deterioration and disability. Characterization of service provision revealed flexibility within and across subspecialties as the patient’s condition evolved. One year following discharge, the patient was reevaluated by Psychology and demonstrated remarkable physical rehabilitation gains as well as resolution of mood and anxiety concerns (evidenced by subclinical scores on the PHQ-9 and GAD-7). Conclusion: Results demonstrate the effectiveness of psychological, spiritual, and palliative care efforts in tandem with tailored medical intervention to address “total pain” and improve patient outcomes. Influences of cultural practices and spiritual beliefs on pediatric palliative care are highlighted throughout. The relative variance of service provision within and across time points illustrates the flexible and complementary nature of PPC services.

  • Parents’ own words: Adjustment and coping following infant death in
           the NICU.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: Research demonstrates the death of a child can be particularly traumatic for parents with long-lasting effects, yet the impact of losing an infant in the NICU remains understudied. This article aims to examine parent perceptions of emotional, social, occupational, familial, and physical impacts of their infant’s death in the NICU and to provide insight into the psychosocial needs of parents at this difficult time. Method: Twenty-nine mothers and 16 fathers representing 30 infants who died in a large, Midwestern, Level IV NICU, opted-in to interviews as part of a larger pilot study. Mothers and fathers participated an average of 38.45 (SD = 16.73, range = 3–70) and 37.06 (SD = 6.91, range = 3–62) months after death, respectively, and answered questions pertaining to the impact of infant loss. Three researchers used content analysis to produce themes describing the impact of infant loss on parents. Results: Parents described both negative and positive effects, underscoring both risk and resilience associated with bereavement. Findings highlight several similarities with families who experience the death of an older child, as well as some shared experiences between mothers and fathers. Results highlight both pain and growth in NICU parents following the death of their infant. Conclusions: Providers must thoughtfully incorporate family-centered communication, education, and preparation regarding bereavement, both as end of life approaches and following the death. Care should not conclude with the death but should continue to support parents and families as they navigate long-term grieving processes. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Bereaved parents’ health outcomes following the death of their
           child.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: The death of one’s child may negatively affect parental health. Existing models exploring parental bereavement do not provide sufficient frameworks to understand the complexities of health outcomes. The purpose of this study was to examine the health status of bereaved parents. Method: Cross-sectional retrospective study of bereaved parents whose children died at this hospital between 2002 and 2019. A study-specific demographic questionnaire, the National Institutes of Health Roadmap Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) initiative. Depressive symptoms were assessed using the PROMIS v1.0 Emotional Distress–Depression—Short Form 8a (Pilkonis et al., 2011). PROMIS measures (depressive symptoms, anxiety, applied cognitive functioning, physical functioning, sleep disturbance), and a measure of posttraumatic growth were mailed and included a link to self-enter data via Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap, n.d.) or return paper copies. Results: One hundred fifty surveys were returned (22% response rate). Mean participant age was 41.6 years (SD = 10.3 years; 83% female). Participants’ health history responses show greater prevalence of depressive symptoms, anxiety, and sleep disorders after their child’s death. The largest difference on PROMIS measures was poorer physical function in the bereaved cohort than in the general population. There were no differences in PROMIS scores based on participant gender or on the presence of surviving siblings. Among those reporting smoking or alcohol consumption, qualitative data suggest that although some might increase use, such use might decrease over time. Conclusions: Bereaved parents manifest poorer psychological and cognitive functioning, and their physical functioning was substantially poorer than the general population mean. Bereaved parents may benefit from proactive guidance normalizing potential challenges to health status and behavior, including appropriate psychoeducational resources.

  • The impact of family bereavement interventions: Qualitative feedback
           identifies needs.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: To present a synthesis of program improvement evaluations of two approaches to bereavement support for families: (a) weekend family camps providing developmentally targeted grief education and social support for children and parents, and (b) a wait-list control randomized trial of a parent bereavement group intervention. Method: Families eligible for camp experienced a child’s death (from any cause) and have surviving children at home. No-cost twice-yearly weekend camps include support sessions and family activities like fishing. After each retreat, parents and children complete an anonymous evaluation. We analyzed forms from 2009–2014 using the constant comparative method to devise a code structure and identify themes to understand camp impact. The second intervention, the bereavement group, included English and Spanish speaking parents of children who died from cancer. They were initially randomized to intervention and wait-list control groups. Intervention included six-weekly sessions of a bereavement program. Participants were invited to a postintervention focus group to better understand reasons for participation, the value of the group, and their support needs. Results: Qualitative findings from both groups strongly indicate that bereaved parents have specific ongoing needs that can be addressed through family- or parent-focused interventions. Families identified benefits including being able to openly express feelings with peers who truly understand, gaining an understanding of individual and developmental differences in the grief process, improved mood and coping, and enhanced relationships/communication within their families. Conclusions: Bereaved parents, in a subclinical range for mental health concerns, identified the need for ongoing support and benefited from organized peer-support.

  • A framework for navigating requests for nondisclosure in pediatric
           palliative care.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background: The treatment courses of youth with complex, chronic, and/or life-threatening illnesses are often punctuated with many consequential decision points, particularly when new information related to diagnosis or prognosis is revealed. These junctures may prompt disagreements between and within families and medical teams related to the appropriate amount and type of information to share with the child. When the beliefs held by clinicians and families about information disclosure diverge, pediatric psychologists may be consulted to facilitate collaborative conversations and promote shared decision-making. Objective: Decision-making regarding disclosure is often complex and nuanced. This article sought to synthesize literature on factors that influence disclosure in order to offer a unified model through which pediatric psychologists could guide these discussions. Method: The current article reviews relevant literature through the lens of Bronfenbrenner’s (1994) Ecological Systems Framework. A detailed case vignette is used to illustrate the application of this framework to disclosure decisions. Conclusion: The framework presented in this article is offered as a guide for liaising with families and treatment teams, promoting enhanced understanding of divergent viewpoints, and facilitating collaborative conversations about the amount and type of information to share (or not to share) with the child.

  • Health disparities: Barriers to building evidence for effective palliative
           end-of-life care for spanish-speaking teens with cancer.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: The efficacy of pediatric advance care planning (pACP) has been demonstrated in English-speaking adolescents with cancer and HIV, but not in other populations. The purpose of this study was to (a) adapt and refine a three-session pACP intervention for Spanish-speaking adolescents with cancer and (b) evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and safety. Method: Using a community-based participatory approach and key informant interviews, we identified important themes: respect for physicians, need for community education about pACP, fear of deportation, and the importance of including family for any pediatric intervention. Results: Using an iterative process, we adapted/refined an existing pACP protocol. The outcome was a culturally adapted and manualized curriculum with a manual of operating procedures, as well as consents, assents, study questionnaires, and a REDCap database in English and Spanish. Questionnaires about spirituality and religion were acceptable. Conclusions: Results suggest that pACP would be feasible, following community education, if delivered during a hospital visit with the patient and family together along with a Spanish-speaking facilitator so a translator is not needed. Support was needed to complete hospital documents, which even in Spanish were not always understandable. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Unheard voices: Underrepresented families perspectives of pediatric
           palliative care.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: Each year, half a million families cope with pediatric life-threatening illness in the United States. While research on pediatric palliative care (PPC) is growing, literature focusing on caregivers and patients who identify as Black, indigenous, or people of color (BIPOC) is limited. Given disproportionate experiences of health care disparities among BIPOC families, further exploration of these families’ perspectives of PPC is imperative to improving health equity. The present topical review summarizes existing literature on BIPOC family experiences of PPC in order to inform current clinical practice and future research. Methods: Searches were conducted on databases including PubMed and PsycInfo, using the keywords pediatric palliative care, race, and ethnicity. Results: Based on available literature, regardless of ethnicity/race, families commonly identify clinician communication and management of patient pain as critical and desired components of PPC; however, research among BIPOC families suggests unmet needs across these domains as well as the need for improved physician cultural sensitivity. Conclusions: Existing PPC research among BIPOC families suggests unmet needs across domains, as well as the importance of attention to family culture and values. We conclude by providing recommendations for a culturally sensitive, family-centered approach to PPC; in addition to future mixed-methods research recommendations focusing on the experiences of BIPOC families.

  • Psychologists in pediatric palliative care: Clinical care models within
           the United States.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: To examine the roles of psychologists in delivering pediatric palliative care (PPC) services, barriers and facilitators of psychologists’ involvement in PPC, and strategies to improve psychology integration into PPC. Method: N = 131 PPC professionals (45% physicians, 26% psychologists, 12% advanced practice nurses, 17% other disciplines) employed at hospitals serving pediatric patients across the United States completed an online survey. Results: Most psychologists who provide PPC services are members of a primary team that delivers palliative care independently or in collaboration with a specialized PPC program. Psychologists provide various services within the purview of PPC, including interventions to relieve children’s psychological and physical symptoms, support patient and family decision-making, and address grief and bereavement. Psychologists also commonly provide psychosocial support for health care providers and teach, supervise, and/or mentor trainees in PPC. Findings suggest a range of interrelated factors that influence integration of psychology in PPC, including funding, billing, time, training, institutional/departmental culture, quality of interdisciplinary collaborations, extent of psychosocial provider role differentiation, and perceptions of the value of psychology services. Strategies to improve integration included addressing funding, billing, and reimbursement challenges; expanding training and developing professional competencies for psychologists in PPC; optimizing communication and collaboration between psychologists and other PPC professionals; and conducting research on the value psychologists add to PPC teams. Conclusions: Pediatric psychologists provide a variety of important services to advance holistic care for children with life-limiting conditions and their families. Additional research examining the effectiveness of different models of psychology integration in PPC is warranted. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Childhood cancer physical symptom burden and parent distress: The role of
           parent rumination.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: Symptom burden of children with cancer appears to contribute to parent distress, but the mechanisms of this relationship are relatively unexplored. The current cross-sectional study examined rumination (i.e., repeated focus on negative events and experiences) as a mediator of the associations between parent-report of child (a) pain or (b) nausea, and parent posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS); parent-report of child symptoms → parent rumination → parent PTSS. Methods: Caregivers (N = 40, MAge = 38.7 years, female = 87.5%, White = 67.5%) of children with cancer (MAge = 9.4 years) were recruited at a Midwest pediatric cancer center following their child’s diagnosis (MMonths = 2.97 ± 1.98). Parents completed the PedsQL-Cancer Module, the Ruminative Response Scale, and the Impact of Events Scale—Revised. To test the hypothesized indirect effects, 2 separate regression models specifying 5,000 bias-corrected bootstrapping resamples were conducted via Hayes’ PROCESS macro. Family income served as a covariate. Results: Bootstrap regression analysis revealed that parent-report of child pain had an indirect effect on parent PTSS via parent rumination, controlling for family income, R2 = .37, ß = −.24, 95% CI [−.494, −.033]. Child nausea demonstrated an indirect effect on parent PTSS via parent rumination, controlling for family income, R2 = .36, ß = −.22, 95% CI [−.428, −.008].
