Test of a conceptual model of uncertainty in children with cancer.


Treatment for childhood cancer has improved to the point where most children currently diagnosed with cancer can be expected to attain long term remission and probably cure. Despite improvements in overall outcome, however, uncertainty continues to pervade the illness experience. Although the literature suggests that uncertainty is one of the primary challenges children face in adjusting to cancer, children's responses to uncertainty have not been systematically studied.
