Nurse Case Manager Model on Neuroblastoma Caregiver's Uncertainty (NCMM)
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
Clinical Problem and Significance: The incidence of neuroblastoma is about 30 cases a year in Taiwan. The five-year survival rate of neuroblastom is near 50% in Taiwan. Compared to the survival rate in Western countries, the treatment in Taiwan needs more efforts to improve. According to the report from the Childhood Cancer Foundation ROC, several children with neuroblastoma did not complete their treatment and or not received the protocol. In addition to the efforts in improving protocol, the reasons for those who drop-out and do not receive complete treatment need the investigators more attention to think of.
Purpose of Study: The main purpose is to evaluate the effects of nurse case manager model on caregivers' adaptation of disease uncertainty about then child with neuroblastorna.
Methods: A longitudinal and prospective design will be used to perform this study. Questionnaire survey and chart review will be the means of data collection for the part of quantative analysis. The qualitative method , semi-structural interview , also will be used to collect data regarding caregiver's perception of social support and adaptation at the same time of self-report of questionnaires survey .There are five points of time to collect data: Baseline (A), 3 months(B) , 6 months(C), 9 months(D),1 year(E) and 1.5 year(F) after eligible subjects agree to participate in the study.

Data Analysis: Quantitative data will be analyzed using SPSS 15.0 statistical software. The data will be analyzed using descriptive statistics and inferred statistics. Content analysis and theme formation will be categorized to assist the interpretation of quantitative results.
Implication: The findings of this study will be expected of the effects of nurse care manager model on children with newoblastoma cancer survivors.
