OBJECTIVES: Depression is associated with high healthcare expenditures, and depression treatment may reduce healthcare expenditures. However, to date, there have not been any studies on the effect of depression treatment on healthcare expenditures among cancer survivors. Therefore, this study examined the association between depression treatment and healthcare expenditures among elderly with depression and incident cancer. METHODS: The current study utilized a retrospective longitudinal study design using the linked Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER)-Medicare database...

OBJECTIVE: There has been little attention paid to the role of therapeutic processes in group therapy outcomes for cancer patients participating in group. The goal was to evaluate the contribution of three group processes - group climate (conflict, engagement, avoidance) working alliance, and therapeutic realizations - to the outcomes of two couple-focused approaches to group treatment. METHODS: Three hundred and two women with early stage breast cancer and their partners were randomized to one of two conditions: an eight-session enhanced couple-focused group intervention (ECG) or a couples' support group (SG) participated...

OBJECTIVE: Although a number of effective psychotherapies have been identified for cancer patients, little is known about therapy processes as they unfold the course of treatment and the role of therapy processes in treatment outcome. We used growth curve modeling to evaluate the associations between therapy processes and outcomes among gynecological cancer patients participating in two types of therapy. METHODS: Two hundred twenty five women newly diagnosed with gynecological cancer were randomly assigned to receive eight sessions of a coping and communication intervention (CCI) or a client-centered supportive therapy (SC)...

BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests patients delay reporting symptoms of neutropenic sepsis (NS) despite the risk to their life. This study aimed to elicit factors that contribute to delayed patient reporting of NS symptoms. METHODS: A constructivist grounded theory study used observations of chemotherapy consultations (13 hours) and 31 in-depth interviews to explore beliefs, experiences and behaviors related to NS. Participants included women with breast cancer, their carers (partners, family or friends) and clinicians...

OBJECTIVE: Physical activity after a diagnosis of breast cancer is associated with many health benefits. Health literacy has been shown to relate to physical activity, but there is limited research on this relationship. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between health literacy and physical activity in women diagnosed with breast cancer. Specifically, we examined which of Nutbeam's 3 levels of health literacy (functional, interactive, and critical health literacy) predicted physical activity in women who have completed treatment for breast cancer...

BACKGROUND: To assess whether sexual distress among cervical cancer (CC) survivors is associated with frequently reported vaginal sexual symptoms, other proposed biopsychosocial factors and whether worries about painful intercourse mediate the relation between vaginal sexual symptoms and sexual distress. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 194 sexually active partnered CC survivors aged 25 to 69 years. Sexual distress, vaginal sexual symptoms, sexual pain worry, anxiety, depression, body image concerns, and relationship dissatisfaction and the sociodemographic variables age, time since treatment, and relationship duration were assessed by using validated self-administrated questionnaires...

OBJECTIVE: Active Surveillance (AS) allows men with favourable-risk prostate cancer (PCa) to avoid or postpone active treatment and hence spares potential adverse side effects for a significant proportion of these patients. Active surveillance may create an additional emotional burden for these patients. The aim of the review was to determine the psychological impact of AS to inform future study in this area and to provide recommendations for clinical practice. METHODS: Studies were identified through database searching from inception to September 2015...
