Paediatric patients cured for leukemia back to school: Analysis of narratives about daily life and illness experience

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Pediatric Leukemia; Narratives; Peer Relationships; School Re-Entry.

In the last years, more children and adolescents healed from leukemia go back to their daily life, even if they can have some difficulties. The study aims to examine the narratives of 75 children and adolescents about their return to school post 2-years treatment for leukemia, in order to collect their illness experiences and to identify the best predictors of a good readaptation to school and daily life. The results showed that by increasing age and when the pediatric patient received a hematopoietic stem cells transplantation, at the stop-therapy time her/his perception about relationships at school and academic performance decreased, especially if his/her feelings about the disease and follow-up visits were negative.
