BACKGROUND: Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the world, and it is also the leading cause of cancer deaths among women. Nevertheless, breast cancer survival has increased as a result of improvements in early diagnosis and therapy, for example, oral endocrine therapy. Despite the importance of adherence to endocrine therapy, its trend appears complex and multidimensional and therefore has many loopholes and missing information. OBJECTIVE: The study aims to explore the experiences of adherence to endocrine therapy in women with breast cancer and their perceptions of the challenges they face in adhering to their medication prescribed...

Timothy S Sannes, Susan K Mikulich-Gilbertson, Crystal L Natvig, Benjamin W Brewer, Teresa L Simoneau, Mark L Laudenslager
BACKGROUND: Caregiving for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (Allo-HSCT) patients can be significantly burdensome. Caregiver well-being often mirrors patients' suffering. However, to our knowledge, this dyadic relationship has not been linked to patient outcome. OBJECTIVE: Caregiver's objective and subjective sleep and overall distress before transplantation were hypothesized to be related to patient's time to engraftment in secondary analyses. METHODS: Dyads (N = 124) were Allo-HSCT patients (mean [SD] age, 49...
