The consequences of cancer persist beyond the clinical setting. Resources to assess the child’s quality of life and markers of well-being outside of the clinical setting can support a more personalized approach to care. Color Me Healthy is a new, game-based symptom assessment app that was co-designed by children with cancer and pediatric oncology clinicians.
Though journaling activities are feasible among adults with cancer and supported coping, less is known about the feasibility of journaling among children and the content of their entries. This study qualitatively analyzed diary entries completed by children with cancer who used the Color Me Healthy app during a trial of its feasibility and acceptability. Through these analyses, the study explored the content of children’s entries and how the entries provide an insight into children’s integration of life and illness.
