This episode features the work of Dr Eliza M Park et al (Department of Psychiatry, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC, USA) who describes a study which aimed to describe the experience of living with advanced cancer as a parent, including illness experience, parental concerns, and treatment decision making and to explore whether these experiences differ by their functional status. The study was a cross-sectional, qualitative study using in-depth, semi-structured interviews. Data were analyzed using thematic content analysis. The results demonstrated four themes regarding the experience of being a parent with advanced cancer: (1) parental concerns about the impact of their illness and death on their children, (2) “missing out” and losses of parental role and responsibilities, (3) maintaining parental responsibilities despite life-limiting illness, and (4) parental identity influencing decision making about treatment.
