Teenagers' ability to deal with the loss of a parent to cancer is determined by the information medical staff give them in the final week of their parents' lives. That is the main finding of a new report published by the Karolinska Institute medical university in Stockholm.

The research also suggests that teenagers who are not provided with sufficient information about their parents' care, are twice as likely to suffer from depression later in life, reports Swedish Radio News.

The study, the first of its kind, was conducted among more than 600 young people aged between 13 and 16.
