I am a Pediatric Psychologist and Psychosocial Researcher.
Kimberly Canter, Ph.D.
Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children
Dr. Canter is a pediatric psychologist and researcher, passionate about developing and implementing evidence-based, technology-enabled psychosocial interventions to decrease traumatic medical stress and enhance coping skills for children with cancer and their families. She has a specific interest in interventions that are wide-reaching and helpful in terms of increasing access and reducing healthcare disparities among underserved and underrepresented populations. To this end, she has spent the past several years developing and testing the Electronic Surviving Cancer Competently Intervention Program (eSCCIP), which is a cognitive-behavioral and family systems eHealth intervention for parents and other primary caregivers of children with cancer.
Dr. Canter's R01 will allow her to conduct a rigorous, multisite, randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of eSCCIP in English and Spanish in decreasing acute distress and symptoms of posttraumatic distress, and in improving coping self-efficacy and use of positive cognitive coping strategies. She will also examine patterns of user engagement and predictors of treatment gains, as well as conduct a preliminary analysis of costs and implementation strategies. Knowledge gained from this project will inform future studies focused on intervention optimization and scalability, and it is Dr. Canter's sincere hope that this study will help to establish eSCCIP as a useful and accessible intervention for all parents and caregivers of children with cancer.
