Abstract
The family intervention for the well-being of kids with cancer is centered on the researcher's human service intervention approach for increasing the family endurance of kids with cancer. Efficiency in family involvement was one of the exterior aspects of family endurance. Kid's well-being is aided by families who work properly as a unit. The way family functions can have an impact on how a kid with cancer adjusts. It's critical to understand how familial functioning, especially parental adaptation and distress, may alter during therapy to deliver successful family treatments. According to a review of the available literature, there are some differences in results in family functioning as a result of childhood malignancy. Although some families demonstrated resiliency through the therapy, others showed evidence of deterioration. Furthermore, several families showed signs of improvement. Furthermore, it was discovered that such findings were linked to several study approaches, including qualitative, quantitative, longitudinal, and cross-sectional research. Depending on these empirical distinctions, the goal of this review was to find correlations between various research approaches and specific outcomes to gain a better understanding of the dynamic shifts within families and their role during childhood treatment for cancer. The descriptive phase's findings revealed that parents' perceptions of their well-being and ability to face the difficulties of sickness are low, that they face severe economic burdens, and that they face a burden in disrupting typical family routines, family relaxation, and family communication. The family members' overall health was affected by the child's sickness. As the treatment progressed, parents noticed a decrease in the social protection they got. Following the intervention, the investigator evaluated the families' family system and discovered favorable improvements in familial closeness, parenting practices, and familial dispute.
