Zeynep Kisecik Sengul, Naime Altay
PURPOSE: This descriptive cross-sectional study aimed to determine the impact of parental depression level on children's quality of life after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). METHOD: This study was conducted in a bone marrow transplantation unit of a children's hospital in Ankara, Turkey. The research sample consisted of 82 parents. Children aged 2-18 years and monitored in polyclinics 100 days after HSCT were included in the study.

PURPOSE: Recent advances in cancer therapies offer survival benefit when cure is no longer possible. The contribution of the Medical Emergency Teams (METs) in the context of advancing disease has received little empirical consideration. This study set out to explore MET intervention at the end of life for people with advanced cancer in an Australian comprehensive cancer centre, and its impact on quality of death. METHOD: A retrospective medical chart review was undertaken to explore MET response for people with advanced (incurable) cancer nearing end of life...

Ling-Chun Lu, Xuan-Yi Huang, Chien-Chih Chen
PURPOSE: Altered bowel function is a common consequence of anal sphincter-saving surgery in rectal cancer patients, and bowel symptoms influence patients' daily life and psychosocial status. Patients have inadequate professional support because care specialists fail do fully appreciate the impact of the patients' symptoms. In-depth exploration of the individual's experience is essential to improve the quality of patient care. The purpose of this study was to explore the lived experiences of post-operative rectal cancer patients with altered bowel function...

PURPOSE: The recruitment of participants to randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in palliative cancer care by health care professionals is often unsuccessful, which could result in failure to achieve study power. The purpose of this paper is to describe how health care professionals experienced recruiting patients and family caregivers to an RCT in palliative cancer care. METHODS: The study had a qualitative explorative design. Ten palliative home care settings were involved in the RCT and data were generated through focus group discussions and interviews with health care professionals who were responsible for the recruitment...

PURPOSE: Living with a melanoma diagnosis can be challenging. We aimed to assess the feasibility, acceptability, and perceived value of a nurse-led intervention that utilised patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures to identify and address the supportive care needs of newly diagnosed patients with Stage I/II melanoma over the first 4 months post-diagnosis. METHODS: We conducted an exploratory, repeated-measures, single-arm, feasibility trial. One baseline (4 weeks post-diagnosis; T1) and one follow-up intervention session (4 weeks after wide local excision; T3) took place, two months apart...

PURPOSE: When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, it affects all family members. Therefore, the aim of this study was to elucidate family members lived experience when a family member is diagnosed with breast cancer. METHOD: The study had a hermeneutic phenomenological design including individual conversational interviews conducted face-to-face with six women with breast cancer and their family members at two different points of time, in order to elucidate families' lived experience, both as individuals and as a unit, from each family member's perspective...

PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: Patients' perceptions about tools for self-reporting symptoms experienced at home may influence both the patients' use of the tool and ultimately the efficacy of the interventions. The aim of this study was to determine the extent patients use a paper-pencil symptom-monitoring diary during chemotherapy treatment, to identify factors that mediate its use at home, and to determine perceptions patients have of the diary. METHODS: A quantitative survey assessed patients' use of the diary, their experiences and opinions...

PURPOSE: End-of-life (EOL) care is considered to be inherently difficult and vulnerable for patients and nurses. It also seems hard to develop passion for care during these problematic times. This study elucidates how EOL nurses interpret their care experience and how they transform their experience and mindset. METHODS: This study was conducted by organizing a reflective group based on the concept of group analysis for oncology and hospice nurses to share their experience...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effectiveness of a clinical and home-based, nurse-led physical activity program (PAP) and simple lymphatic drainage (SLD) in the prevention of breast cancer-related lymphedema. METHODS: A total of 52 breast cancer patients were randomized to either a PAP and SLD program (n = 25) or a control group (n = 27). Patients in both groups were also provided training for lymphedema. The PAP and SLD were administered through home visits by the investigators, twice a week for six weeks, in the intervention group...

PURPOSE: Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) evaluations are being increasingly used for clinical assessment of cancer treatment outcomes. For a patient, not only is life expectancy important, but also a general sense of sustained global health. Intuitively, the more disfiguring the treatment, the more pronounced could be the deterioration in the QoL. We aimed to compare various aspects of QoL in three groups of patients surgically treated for penile cancer by local excision, partial penectomy, or total penectomy...

PURPOSE: We aimed to examine the level of psychological distress, fatigue, and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and identify HRQOL predictors in men with prostate cancer receiving androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). METHODS: Using a cross-sectional design, we recruited 161 men with prostate cancer receiving ADT (mean age, 73 years) at two university-based hospitals in South Korea. Participants completed a self-reported questionnaire. Measures included the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy-Fatigue (FACIT-F) subscale, and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Prostate (FACT-P)...

PURPOSE: The symptom clusters in patients with ovarian cancer undergoing chemotherapy have not been well evaluated. We investigated the symptom clusters and effects of symptom clusters on the quality of life of patients with ovarian cancer. METHOD: We recruited 210 ovarian cancer patients being treated with chemotherapy and used a descriptive cross-sectional study design to collect information on their symptoms. To determine inter-relationships among symptoms, a principal component analysis with varimax rotation was performed based on the patient's symptoms (fatigue, pain, sleep disturbance, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, anxiety, depression, and sexual dysfunction)...

PURPOSE: This study analyses the premise that less time spent carrying out valuable activities and inflexible avoidance of thoughts, feelings and memories related to the oncological process may play an important role in the emotional problems of cancer survivors. METHODS: Emotional state was evaluated, as was quality of life and psychological flexibility in a sample of 122 breast cancer survivors (Mage = 52.40; SDage = 7.26). The analysis was carried out using a cross-sectional predictive study...
