BACKGROUND: Lung cancer patients report among the highest distress rates of all cancer patients. Partners report similar distress rates. The present study examined the effectiveness of additional Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (CAU + MBSR) versus solely care as usual (CAU) to reduce psychological distress in lung cancer patients and/or their partners. METHODS: We performed a multicentre, parallel-group, randomized controlled trial. MBSR is an 8-week group-based intervention, including mindfulness practice and teachings on stress...

PURPOSE: This study compared self-reported burnout between dual-role oncologists (oncologists who also do psychosocial work) and single-role oncologists, to explore if dual role is protective against or a risk factor for burnout. METHODS: Dual-role oncologists from across China (n = 131) were consecutively recruited via the Chinese Psychosocial Oncology Society (CPOS) and asked to identify single-role oncologist peers (n = 168) working in the same institution...

OBJECTIVE: Despite the well-known negative impacts of cancer and anticancer therapies on cognitive performance, little is known about the cognitive compensatory processes of older patients with cancer. This study was designed to investigate the cognitive compensatory processes of older, clinically-fit patients with hematologic malignancies undergoing chemotherapy. METHODS: We assessed 89 consecutive patients (age ≥ 65 years) without severe cognitive impairment and 89 age-, sex-, and education level-matched healthy controls...

PURPOSE: To describe levels of, and relationships between, distress and psychosocial unmet needs in Adolescents and Young Adults (AYAs) with a family member with cancer. METHODS: AYAs (12-24 years old) with a living sibling or parent with cancer participated. Participants completed demographics, the Kessler 10 (K10) distress scale and the Sibling or Offspring Cancer Needs Instruments (SCNI or OCNI). Descriptive statistics were obtained for all measures, item-level frequencies were examined to identify common unmet needs and relationships between distress and unmet needs were explored...

OBJECTIVES: This paper will explore how help is constructed during and following radiotherapy for patients with cancer. METHODS: Grounded theory methods were used in the study to explore the way in which family members and friends constructed a role for themselves in relation to patients receiving radiotherapy. A total of 22 helpers were interviewed. Patients were being treated for a range of cancers including breast, prostate, colorectal and head and neck. RESULTS: Respondents in this study consistently defined themselves as 'helpers' rather than 'carers'...

OBJECTIVE: Severe grief symptoms in family caregivers during end-of-life cancer trajectories are associated with complicated grief and depression after the loss. Nevertheless, severe grief symptoms during end-of-life caregiving in caregivers to cancer patients have been scarcely studied. We aimed to explore associations between severe pre-loss grief symptoms in caregivers and modifiable factors such as depressive symptoms, caregiver burden, preparedness for death and end-of-life communication...

OBJECTIVE: In order to optimize personalized medicine for patients with hematological malignancies (HM), knowledge on patient preferences with regard to information provision and shared decision-making (SDM) is of the utmost importance. The aim of this study was to investigate the SDM preference and the satisfaction with and need for information among newly diagnosed HM-patients and their informal caregivers, in relation to sociodemographic and clinical factors, cognitive coping style, and health related quality of life...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the prevalence of anxiety, depression and stress among rural and urban support persons of haematological cancer survivors, and explore factors associated with having one of more of these outcomes. METHODS: Haematological cancer survivors were identified via one of 5 state-based cancer registries and invited to take part in a survey.

OBJECTIVE: Cancer poses unique challenges for the couple relationship. From a relational perspective, successful adaptation may be less dependent on the circumstances of being the "patient" or the "caregiver" than on how couples successfully integrate cancer into their relationship. In this article, we study posttraumatic growth through attachment theory, which provides a useful framework to explore the role of intimate processes dyadically. METHOD: The sample comprised 84 heterosexual married and cohabitating couples...
