Relaxation techniques in children with cancer: The nurse's role

Journal Article

Relaxation techniques used to decrease the deleterious side effects of cancer therapy are now accepted approaches at most institutions. Utilization of these methods by nurses can offer effective coping strategies for children with cancer. Those individuals most intimately involved in the care of the child can provide a trusting relationship that will facilitate more effective use of relaxation techniques. Involvement of parents with these methods can enhance the utilization of these techniques while increasing their involvement in the child's care. © 1988.
