Pain is a common experience during cancer treatment, but for some children and adolescents, the pain isn’t over when the cancer ends. This research seeks to better understand the pain experience in childhood cancer survivors.
We are looking for youth (ages 8-18 years old) living in Nova Scotia who have completed treatment for cancer and their parent to each participate in a 1-hour interview about their experiences with pain. Interviews can be done in-person or over the phone.
Children and their parents will each receive a $20.00 gift card as a thank you.
This study has been approved by the IWK Health Centre Research Ethics Board.
