Abstract

Purpose/objective Bluebond-Langner's highly influential ethnographic study in the 1970s was the first of its kind to detail the everyday experiences of patients and their families during childhood cancer. The landscape of care and treatment is now very different, with families having a realistic expectation of cure, despite the continuing arduous nature of the treatment: our current study takes place in a very different medical and cultural context. As part of our on-going research programme to explore communication patterns, this study looks at the work of newly diagnosed children with leukaemia. We sought to enrich our understanding of the complicated context-related factors facilitating or barring successful communication.
