I feel that the clinical psychologist did a great job introducing this topic to the family. The family stated that they feel pushed into this decision. The psychologist made it clear that they aren’t pushing, they just want to be sure they present the options and that the family makes the right decision for their specific scenario. My position is the Registered Nurse Navigator for our Pediatric Survivorship clinic. This topic can be very difficult to present in a way that the parent and child understand. All of this terrible new is getting thrown at them, and then we top it off with saying it may affect their fertility. Within my Pediatric Survivorship Clinic, we want to be sure we give them the information needed to make the decision that is best for them.

I am also a nurse for a Survivorship clinic. I agree with you that the psychologist did a good job presenting the information and made sure to make the family feel there was no pressure. It’s important for patients and families to feel there’s no right or wrong answer and emphasize that you are just providing information so they are well informed.
