Clinical Trial Description

Cancer, one of the most important health problems of today, affects children as well as adults and the number of children diagnosed with cancer is increasing all over the world. Cancer management is generally a more complex process than other diseases and requires the caregiver family to have knowledge and skills. Because; Parents, who are the most important persons to contribute to the care of children with oncological problems, need to be supported and strengthened not only in the hospital but also in the home environment in order to manage and solve the problems and cope with this situation. One of the methods used in the empowerment of caregivers; is the family-centered empowerment model (FCEM). Model; It consists of four stages: increasing knowledge, self-efficacy and self-esteem, and evaluation. The purpose of this model; to protect the health of the family and their children, to manage the disease and symptoms, to reduce the incidence of acute attacks, to improve the quality of care by improving the quality of life of children and their parents. Because of technological advancements and growth in the number of internet users, web-based education (WBE) has become one of the most popular ways patient and family education. There is research in the literature that illustrates the benefits of web-based treatments in family strengthening.The web-based training content will be prepared based on the Family-Centered Empowerment Model. For ten weeks, parents will receive a web-based training based on the family-centered empowerment model. For the control group, routine patient education and routine hospital follow-ups will be performed by their nurses during the ten weeks follow-up period. The study's sample size; A priori power analysis was used to determine the minimum sample size. The sample size for the intervention and control groups was 38 parents, and the double-sided hypothesis was calculated as n1=n2, the effect size of 0.659, with 5% Type I error and 80% power. Research data; It was collected using the Parent and Child Information Form, the General Self-Efficacy Scale, the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, the Depression Anxiety and Stress Scale, and the Care Ability Scale of Family Caregivers of Cancer Patients. A statistical package program will be used in the analysis of the data. The conformity of the mean scores of the scale to the normal distribution will be evaluated with the coefficients of kurtosis and skewness, and the means will be compared with parametric or nonparametric test techniques. The similarity of the groups in terms of demographic and clinical characteristics will be evaluated with the relevant tests. Cohen's d effect size will be calculated to express the size of the difference between the means. ;
