Abstract

Objectives To examine the feasibility/acceptability of a parent-delivered Active Music Engagement (AME+P) intervention for young children with cancer and their parents. Secondary aim to explore changes in AME+P child emotional distress (facial affect) and parent emotional distress (mood; traumatic stress symptoms) relative to controls. Methods A pilot two-group randomized trial was conducted with parents/children (ages 3-8 years) receiving AME+P (n = 9) or attention control (n = 7). Feasibility of parent delivery was assessed using a delivery checklist and child engagement; acceptability through parent interviews; preliminary outcomes at baseline, postintervention, 30 days postintervention. Results Parent delivery was feasible, as they successfully delivered AME activities, but interviews indicated parent delivery was not acceptable to parents. Emotional distress was lower for AME+P children, but parents derived no benefit. Conclusion Despite child benefit, findings do not support parent delivery of AME+P.
