S H Chiang, K Y Ho, S Y Wang, C C Lin
PURPOSE: Research on symptom clusters is a newly emerging field in oncology; however, little evidence regarding symptom clusters in head and neck cancer (HNC) is currently available. To clarify this under-researched area, we investigated symptom clusters among patients with HNC treated with surgery and postoperative radiotherapy. We also examined the pattern of symptom clusters throughout the treatment course. METHOD: A convenience sample of 100 patients with HNC was recruited in the Ear, Nose, and Throat unit of a medical center in Taiwan...

PURPOSE: Smoking is a major cause of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), yet many patients who receive a diagnosis continue to smoke. This has an adverse effect on treatment and recovery, and leads to increased risks of recurrence and second cancers. There is evidence that stopping smoking after diagnosis can lead to better outcomes and reversal of risks. However, there is limited evidence for effective smoking cessation interventions in this population, and little about patient opinions regarding quitting smoking and support provided by healthcare professionals...

Mary Rezk-Hanna, Linda Sarna, Anne Berit Petersen, Marjorie Wells, Iveta Nohavova, Stella Bialous
PURPOSE: Smoking among nurses is a barrier to providing smoking cessation interventions to patients. In Central and Eastern Europe-where tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death and disease-there is limited knowledge about nurses' attitudes toward cessation interventions. Our aim was to describe the attitudes of nurses who are former and current smokers toward providing cessation interventions to patients as well as explore barriers and facilitators to their own quit efforts...
