During 2015 a few guidelines and meta-analyses have attempted to revise the standards of interventions with children and adolescents. On the one hand, an American study reviewed the existing standards and guidelines for psychosocial care of children (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/pon.3589/abstract). The authors of this study have also published the revised APOS-IPOS quick reference book on “Pediatric Psycho-Oncology” (https://global.oup.com/academic/product/pediatric-psycho-oncology-9780199335114?cc=it&lang=en&;). On the other hand, a European meta-analysis evaluated the psychosocial interventions for adolescents and young adults (http://www.croh-online.com/article/S1040-8428%2815%2900069-4/abstract). They all stress the importance of further research in this special population.
