Investigating the Needs of Childhood Cancer Survivors: The Unreported Experience

2014-08-27 03:15:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This feasibility study will determine the psychometric adequacy of a newly developed instrument - Needs Assessment Survey of Adult Childhood Cancer Survivors. Additionally the study will explore the feasibility of selected study methods -- sample selection, length of time to complete recruitment, and response rates - in order to inform a larger national periodic survey of adult survivors' health related needs

Description

This study will focus on the following primary and secondary objectives:

1. Examine the construct validity, short-term stability, internal consistency and item-response performance of a health-related needs assessment self-report instrument for adult childhood cancer survivors

2. Inform future sample stratification by oversampling minority and rural-dwelling survivors to enhance the heterogeneity of the respondent pool;

3. Describe the met and unmet health-related needs and their covariates in a large, stratified, random sample of childhood cancer survivors;

4. Evaluate the sample selection methods, length of time to complete recruitment, and response rates in the study sample.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Persons who experienced traumatic events during childhood.

Rare congenital metabolism disorders of the urea cycle. The disorders are due to mutations that result in complete (neonatal onset) or partial (childhood or adult onset) inactivity of an enzyme, involved in the urea cycle. Neonatal onset results in clinical features that include irritability, vomiting, lethargy, seizures, NEONATAL HYPOTONIA; RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS; HYPERAMMONEMIA; coma, and death. Survivors of the neonatal onset and childhood/adult onset disorders share common risks for ENCEPHALOPATHIES, METABOLIC, INBORN; and RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS due to HYPERAMMONEMIA.

An obsolete concept, historically used for childhood mental disorders thought to be a form of schizophrenia.

An autosomal recessively inherited glycogen storage disease caused by GLUCAN 1,4-ALPHA-GLUCOSIDASE deficiency. Large amounts of GLYCOGEN accumulate in the LYSOSOMES of skeletal muscle (MUSCLE, SKELETAL); HEART; LIVER; SPINAL CORD; and BRAIN. Three forms have been described: infantile, childhood, and adult. The infantile form is fatal in infancy and presents with hypotonia and a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (CARDIOMYOPATHY, HYPERTROPHIC). The childhood form usually presents in the second year of life with proximal weakness and respiratory symptoms. The adult form consists of a slowly progressive proximal myopathy. (From Muscle Nerve 1995;3:S61-9; Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp73-4)

Mental disorders related to feeding and eating that are usually diagnosed in infancy or early childhood.
