BACKGROUND: A diagnosis of breast cancer disrupts the life of the patient, but also the partner may experience adverse psychological effects. We examined partners' risk for first use of antidepressant medication, as a proxy for pharmacologically treated depression. METHODS: By linkage of national registers, we identified 1,420,592 depression-free men living with a cancer-free female partner in 1998-2011. During follow-up, breast cancer was diagnosed in female partners of 26,256 men...

OBJECTIVE: Gynecologic cancer is associated with long-term effects that can be both physical and emotional. We examined symptom prevalence and body image disturbance in patients with gynecologic cancer, and their association with quality of life. Predictors of clinically-relevant body image disturbance were examined. METHODS: A sample of patients in Singapore (n = 104) was assessed for symptom prevalence, quality of life, and body image dissatisfaction. Clinical factors were extracted from medical records...

OBJECTIVE: Breast cancer has psychological consequences that impact quality of life (QOL). We examined factors associated with negative psychological consequences of a breast cancer diagnosis, in a diverse sample of 910 recently diagnosed patients (378 African-American, 372 White, and 160 Latina). METHODS: Patients completed an in-person interview as part of the Breast Cancer Care in Chicago study within an average of four months from diagnosis. The Cockburn negative psychological consequences of breast cancer screening scale was revised to focus on a breast cancer diagnosis...

OBJECTIVE: Training medical students in breaking bad news (BBN) in oncology may be key to improve patient care in an area where many physicians tend to be uncomfortable. Given the lack of evidence in the literature, this study aimed to assess empirically the impact of two teaching strategies to prepare students for the task of BBN in oncology: one-to-one simulated patient (SP) training with individual feedback (intervention group) vs. small-group SP training with collective feedback (comparison group)...

REVIEW
Karen Collins, Melanie Gee, Anna Clack, Lynda Wyld
OBJECTIVES: For women who have been diagnosed with unilateral breast cancer there is an increasing trend for them to request removal of the contralateral healthy breast, so called contralateral risk reducing mastectomy (CRRM). The current literature is only just beginning to identify patient-reported reasons for undergoing CRRM and associated patient reported outcomes. It is also unclear whether women at moderate/high risk of developing a subsequent primary contralateral breast cancer report similar outcomes to those considered to be at low/average risk...

OBJECTIVE: Caregivers of advanced cancer patients provide extensive care associated with high levels of caregiver distress. The degree to which cancer caregiving increases caregivers' risk for a psychiatric disorder is unknown. The current study examines whether advanced cancer caregiving poses distinct risks for initial and recurrent major depressive episodes (MDEs) and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) relative to the general population. METHODS: Caregivers of advanced cancer patients (N = 540) from Coping with Cancer were compared to general population controls (N = 9,282) from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication...

OBJECTIVE: Research indicates that health personnel (HP) caring for seriously ill patients with dependent children aged 0-18 often avoid discussing with them the challenges of being a family with a parent in treatment. Children of seriously ill patients (CSIP) risk serious trauma and emotional difficulty later in life and depend on adult support to minimize these consequences. Patients suffer anxiety about supporting their children during their illness. Due to their potentially pivotal role in supporting patients in enabling parent-child communication, we examined HP's structural and emotional barriers to communicating with patients about their children...
