Preparing youth with cancer for amputation: a systematic review.
This review aimed to examine and identify the type and degree of psychosocial preparation provided to the child with cancer and family prior to amputation. Its findings demonstrate that there is a lack of studies to date that have adequately addressed psychosocial preparation prior to amputation for pediatric oncology patients.

The impact of cancer and its treatment on the growth and development of the pediatric patient.
Researchers sought to clarify the different models of psychosocial development and applicable psychosocial interventions to better prepare and tailor cancer treatment to pediatric patients. They found that pediatric patients of all ages cope and adjust better to all phases of treatment when their care is delivered in a developmentally-informed and psychosocially thoughtful way.
