Intentions : « The objective of the survey is to elicit feedback from group participants. The second goal is to learn if group attendance increased a family’s ability to cope with cancer and the third goal is to provide a space for group participants to have their voices heard in the planning process. » (p. 3)
Échantillon/Matériau : « Upon receipt of approval from the Research Ethics Committee of the McGill University School of Social Work (Appendix I) to carry on with this project a letter (Appendix II) was mailed by CanSupport Faire Face to twenty-two (22) families who had attended the group sessions at least once since 1996. This letter served as both invitation to participate and consent form and emphasized the voluntary, supportive and confidential nature of the telephone survey. A total of ten (10) group participants generously gave their time and insights to this project. » (p. 22)

« The main purpose of this study was to elicit feedback from group participants of the Parent/Child Cancer support group at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, Quebec. Ten (10) group participants took part in a telephone survey. The findings of the survey largely matched those of a literature review, validating cancer patients’ needs of support and desire to help their children and families. Other findings demonstrated that patients and children received greater benefit from group participation than ’significant other’. Socialization activities were preferred over group discussion and information sessions. Survey participants supplemented the literature review by noting problems in ’discussion group’ dynamics, a need for both ’community resources’ and attention to ’survival’ issues. » (abstract)
