Description

Summary

To compare donors to their non-donor counterparts and healthy controls as well as to generate trajectory classes based on longitudinal patterns of donor HRQoL and identify predictors of poor donor HRQoL.

Details

There is limited data to show the effects that donation has on pediatric donors to their siblings. There is widespread agreement that it is critical to investigate the medical and psychosocial aspects of sibling pediatric HSC donation for multiple reasons including (a) the vulnerability of the pediatric population undergoing donation, (b) increasing use of pediatric HSC donation as a therapeutic option, (c) evidence that ~20% of pediatric HSC donors experience clinically important HRQoL deficits, and (d) the impact that improved understanding of factors predicting poor HRQoL will have on our ability to develop guidelines and/or interventions for assisting at-risk donors/families. The proposed study will help to compare donors to their non-donor counterparts and healthy controls as well as to generate trajectory classes based on longitudinal patterns of donor HRQoL and identify predictors of poor donor HRQoL.
