PURPOSE: Understanding the concept of a "good death" is crucial to end-of-life care, but our current understanding of what constitutes a good death is insufficient. Here, we investigated the components of a good death that are important to the general population, cancer patients, their families, and physicians. METHODS: We conducted a stratified nationwide cross-sectional survey of cancer patients and their families from 12 hospitals, physicians from 12 hospitals and the Korean Medical Association, and the general population, investigating their attitudes toward 10 good-death components...

PURPOSE: Psychological distress is related to poorer functioning and reduced quality of life in patients with advanced cancer and may have untoward influences on treatment decisions. Current research on factors associated with this distress is limited, making targeted interventions to reduce it suboptimal. We examined the relationships between two goal-related expectancies and two of the most common symptoms of psychological distress in patients living with advanced cancer: anxiety and depressive symptoms...

PURPOSE: Previous studies have underlined the benefits of exercise during cancer therapy. However, patients are insufficiently active during treatment. Telehealth is used to encourage people to be active, reducing difficulties and offsetting the lack of infrastructure often reported. We aimed to identify the effects of recommendations and telehealth on the level of physical activity, fatigue, and quality of life. METHODS: Sixty patients suffering from various cancers under treatment were randomized into two groups...

PURPOSE: Outpatient management of low risk febrile neutropenia patients (LRFN) identified by the MASCC score is a safe and effective strategy. Early supportive care has been shown to improve outcomes in patients with care. We developed an innovative ambulatory outpatient "enhanced supportive care" (ESC) clinic combining emergency oncology and supportive care through which we incorporated the management of patients with LRFN. METHODS: An ESC clinic was started in January 2017 at a tertiary cancer hospital in the North West of England...

INTRODUCTION: Neoplasms are the second most common diseases in western countries. Many patients with malignant diseases repeatedly present themselves in the emergency department (ED). Due to limited capacities, appropriate risk stratification strategies for cancer patients have to be developed. This study assesses if deceleration capacity (DC) of heart rate as a parameter of heart rate variability predicts mortality in emergency patients with malignant diseases. METHODS: Prospectively, 140 adults with different entities of malignant diseases who presented in the medical ED were included...
