Xuan Thi Nhu Ha, Sureeporn Thanasilp, Ratsiri Thato
BACKGROUND: In Vietnam, breast cancer is a top contributor to cancer-related deaths in women. Evidence shows that, after mastectomy, women in Vietnam have a lower quality of life than women in other countries. In addition, high uncertainty is a predictor of low quality of life postmastectomy. Therefore, if nurses can manage uncertainty, the quality of life postmastectomy can improve. OBJECTIVE: This study examined the effect of the Uncertainty Management Program (UMP) on quality of life at 3 weeks postmastectomy in Vietnamese women...

#5
So-Hyun Park, M Tish Knobf, Jane Kerstetter, Sangchoon Jeon
BACKGROUND: The American Cancer Society (ACS) publishes guidelines on nutrition and physical activity to minimize health risks in cancer patients and survivors. Studies show that high adherence to such guidelines is associated with a decrease in overall cancer incidence and mortality. However, there are sparse data on adherence to the ACS guidelines in cancer survivors. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe adherence to the ACS guidelines in female cancer survivors who participated in an exercise intervention trial for 1 year...

BACKGROUND: Individuals receiving radiation for head and neck cancer (HNC) often develop painful oral mucositis that impairs function, possibly leading to feeding tubes, hospitalization, and treatment delays. Although pharmacologic medications provide some relief, many report inadequate analgesia and adverse effects. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a safe, nonpharmacologic intervention; it decreases pain and analgesics and improves function, yet no studies examined TENS for HNC...

BACKGROUND: Family caregivers (FCGs) of adult cancer patients (ACPs) are typically involved in the entire trajectory of cancer disease, from diagnosis to survivorship or end of life. In developing countries, FCGs are more intensely involved in the process of providing care to the hospitalized ACPs because of lack of adequate cancer care resources. Active performance of tasks to meet the needs of ACPs in the hospital setting is likely to elicit significant caregiver burden. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore the tasks performed and the caregiver burden experienced by FCGs of hospitalized ACPs in a sub-Saharan country...

#18
Wei-Wen Wu, Kuan-Chia Lin, Shu-Yuan Liang, Shiann-Tarng Jou
BACKGROUND: Prior studies identifying symptom clusters used a symptom-centered approach to demonstrate the relationship among symptoms. Latent profile analysis (LPA) is a patient-centered approach that classifies individuals from a heterogeneous population into homogeneous subgroups, helping prioritize interventions to focus on clusters with the most severe symptom burden. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to use LPA to determine the best-fit models and to identify phenotypes of severe symptom distress profiles for adolescents with cancer who are undergoing treatment and in survivorship...
