Purpose:

RATIONALE: An education session using a board game or workbook may increase a young donor's knowledge about stem cell transplant. It may also reduce a donor's anxiety about the procedure. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying education sessions to see how well they increase knowledge and reduce anxiety in young first degree relative stem cell donors.


Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Assess young first degree relative stem cell donor comprehension of transplantation procedures and compare knowledge prior to educational interventions (pre- and post-consent information session) to knowledge after educational interventions. Secondary - Assess the efficacy of a workbook intervention as a learning tool for conveying information on stem cell donation and transplantation to pediatric donors. - Assess the effectiveness of a board game intervention (ShopTalk) as a learning tool for conveying information on stem cell donation and transplantation to pediatric donors. - Identify donors who may require additional preparation prior to stem cell collection. - Measure donor anxiety symptoms pre- and post-educational intervention and pre- and post-stem cell donation. - Explore the relationship between donor knowledge and anxiety symptoms pre- and post-stem cell donation. OUTLINE: This is a pilot study. Participants are stratified by age (10-15 years of age vs 16-26 years of age). Participants attend an educational session comprising a board game intervention (ShopTalk) (for participants 10-15 years of age) or a workbook intervention (for participants 16-26 years of age). Participants take a knowledge-assessment quiz at baseline, 24 hours before and after educational session, and 1 month after educational session. Participants also complete a written anxiety assessment at baseline, 24 hours before educational session, and 1 month after educational session. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20 participants will be accrued for this study.
