This prospective cluster-randomized trial examines the efficacy of a novel communication intervention delivered by trained physician and nurse dyads to parents of children with cancer within the clinicians' practice, to foster alignment of the goals of treatment. The investigators hypothesize that goal alignment will improve quality of life outcomes, in particular for those patients who reach end of life. Findings from the proposed research will provide essential information to promote communication practice standards that can be rapidly translated into practice to improve outcomes for children, particularly those who reach end of life, and parents.
