We set out to determine the effectiveness of a multimodality supportive care (ThriverCare) intervention on the prevalence of unmet supportive care needs for men and their partner/caregivers. METHODS: A prospective parallel group, pilot randomised controlled pilot trial in 4 hospitals in Scotland. 38 participants with radiologically proven metastatic prostate cancer disease and 10 partners/caregivers were recruited into the study...

PURPOSE: Prostate cancer is highly prevalent and invasive among older men. Not knowing their experiences hampers care and support to men with prostate cancer and prostate cancer survivors. This study aims to provide insight into older men's experiences with prostate cancer in order to improve personalised care. METHODS: A qualitative research design through semi-structured interviews with 22 older men with prostate cancer was conducted in two areas of the Netherlands in 2015...

Shuai Jin, Qian Lu, Sanli Jin, Lichuan Zhang, Hangjing Cui, Hongmei Li
PURPOSE: To conduct a dynamic and comprehensive evaluation of subjective taste alteration (STA)and identify the association between STA and weight loss in patients with head and neck cancer (HNC) who were treated with radiotherapy. METHODS: STA and weight of 114 patients were recorded at baseline, mid-treatment, post-treatment, and one to two months after radiotherapy (follow-up). Generalized estimating equations (GEE) were used to conduct repeated measures analyses of STA and weight loss at four time-points and assess the relationship between them...

PURPOSE: To examine the effects of walking exercise on exercise tolerance, fatigue, sleep quality, and quality of life (QOL) for children and adolescents with cancer. METHODS: A 6-week walking exercise regimen was implemented in pediatric hematological and oncological wards and in clinics of a medical center in Taiwan. A 6-min walk test (6MWT), fatigue, sleep quality, and QOL were measured at baseline and for six subsequent weeks.

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to identify demographic, health- and cancer-related, and physiological factors associated with dexamethasone-induced intractable hiccups in cancer patients. METHOD: This study adopted a retrospective case control design. The study subjects were 168 cancer patients admitted to a university hospital for chemotherapy between October 2011 and December 2016: 58 patients who experienced intractable hiccups while on dexamethasone (cases) and 110 matched patients who received dexamethasone but did not experience hiccups (controls)...

PURPOSE: Few studies have examined positive and negative affect and prostate cancer-specific anxiety in prostate cancer patients and their partners. Thus, this study explored positive and negative affect and prostate cancer-specific anxiety as well as their associated factors in prostate cancer patients and their partners. METHOD: A prospective repeated-measures design was used. Data were collected from 48 prostate cancer patients and their partners when treatment was determined (before treatment) and at 6, 10, 18, and 24 weeks thereafter...

PURPOSE: Patients diagnosed with breast cancer exhibited critical biopsychosocial functions following surgery or adjuvant treatment; therefore, it is important that they exhibit resilience. A Resilience Model for Breast Cancer (RM-BC) was developed using Chinese breast cancer patients to increase our understanding of how resilience outcomes are positively and negatively affected by protective and risk factors, respectively. METHODS: Chinese women with breast cancer completed the questionnaires within 1 week of beginning treatment...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to identify the characteristics of swallowing ability, depression, and dysphagia-specific health-related quality of life (QOL), and the predictors of dysphagia-specific health-related QOL in oral cavity cancer patients post-treatment. METHODS: A cross-sectional study of 151 oral cavity cancer patients was performed at a medical center. Patients were assessed for swallowing ability, depression, and dysphagia-specific health-related QOL...

PURPOSE: Chemotherapy poses challenges for older patients, with potential comorbidities, mobility and functional problems that may adversely affect their dignity. Patients may struggle with side-effects but fail to inform health professionals, impacting on clinical management and unresolved needs/concerns. This study aims to explore the impact of dignity during chemotherapy for older people and partners.

Warunee Phligbua, Ellen M Lovie Smith, Debra L Barton
PURPOSE: This study evaluated the psychometric properties of the Thai Menopause Specific Quality of Life Questionnaire (MENQOL) instrument in menopausal Thai women with a history of breast cancer. METHODS: Two hundred and ninety women with a history of breast cancer who reported hot flashes completed the Thai MENQOL. Internal consistency reliability and item analysis were used to evaluate the reliability of the Thai MENQOL. Construct validity was evaluated by examining the correlations between the self-reported hot flash frequency and severity with the vasomotor MENQOL subscale (convergent validity); and assessed using exploratory factor analysis (structural validity)...

PURPOSE: The development of advanced nursing practices (ANP) can meet challenges presented by evolving needs of health care. We aimed at describing the approach taken to implement ANP in a pediatric oncology-hematology unit. METHOD: The Participatory, Evidence-informed, Patient-centered Process for Advanced practice was considered as a conceptual framework for the development, implementation and evaluation of the nursing role. Successive steps were taken for identifying patients and family needs, defining the health care priorities, and establishing a new health care model...

PURPOSE: The MFI was developed in 1995 to assess fatigue as a multidimensional concept. This questionnaire has been widely translated and used; however, its multidimensional structure has not been consistent across studies. In addition there is a need for short questionnaires in the clinical context. Therefore, we aim to develop a MFI-short version which is easy-to-use for the patient, quick for the clinician, with solid psychometric properties. METHODS: We examined three MFI-20 validated versions and tested their structure, by leading a CFA on 422 cancer patients to evaluate their psychometric qualities (Study 1)...

PURPOSE: Symptom burden in children with cancer who are less than 8 years old is not well understood. Our research focuses on identifying how to structure a self-report instrument for younger children. Our aim was to describe how children with cancer, aged 4-7 years, express their symptoms through drawings. METHODS: Children were asked to make drawings of a day when they were "feeling bad or not good". Content of 18 children's drawings was analyzed. RESULTS: Four themes were established: physical symptoms, emotions, location and miscellaneous...
