Abstract:
Significant progress in medical techniques over the past 40 years has resulted in the increased survival rate for chronically ill children and adolescents treated with Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT). Concurrent with these medical advances, research has emerged investigating the long-term psychological outcome for paediatric BMT survivors. From these studies it is possible to learn a great deal about the cognitive and psychosocial functioning of children and adolescents treated with BMT and their families. The field has progressed from descriptive studies of adjustment to more explanatory research. It is an apt time for a review of the progress made, the current state of research in this field and the perspectives on future directions.
