Abstract

Purpose of reviewThis article reviews the current literature on psychosocial care of children with cancer with particular focus on evidence-based standards of care, including developments in systematic distress screening, utilization of patient-reported outcomes, evidence-based interventions, survivorship, palliative care and bereavement.Recent findingsAlthough attention to the psychosocial needs of the child and family is increasingly recognized as an essential element of care for children with cancer, implementing evidence-based care remains suboptimal. Recent efforts have focused on utilizing technology to improve the reach of these interventions and to enhance engagement with special populations, such as adolescents and young adults. Increasing data elucidate the long-term psychological and physical late effects of childhood cancer survivorship and the impact of cancer on siblings and the family. Gaps in clinical care and important directions for future research include the needs of infants and toddlers, overlooked minorities, and patients with hereditary tumor predisposition syndromes, and attention to the psychosocial impact of exciting new treatments, such as autologous chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy.SummaryThe evidence base for the psychosocial standards of care for children with cancer and their families continues to grow, but more work is needed to successfully implement these standards across pediatric cancer centers.
