PURPOSE: With the focus on survivorship care-coordination between oncology and primary care providers (PCPs), there is a need to assess the research regarding the use of survivorship care plans (SCPs) and determine emerging research areas. We sought to find out how primary care physicians have been involved in the use of SCPs and determine SCP's effectiveness in improving care for cancer survivors. In this scoping review, we aimed to identify gaps in the current research and reveal opportunities for further research...

PURPOSE: Risk-stratified life-long follow-up care is recommended for adult childhood cancer survivors (CCS) to ensure appropriate prevention, screening, and management of late effects. The identification of barriers to long-term follow-up (LTFU), particularly in varying healthcare service contexts, is essential to develop and refine services that are responsive to survivor needs. We aimed to explore CCS and healthcare professionals (HCP) perspectives of healthcare system factors that function as barriers to LTFU in British Columbia, Canada...

PURPOSE: Cancer survivorship clinics manage cancer-related health complications and are available primarily in urban areas. We examine how demographic, clinical, and geographic-based characteristics are associated with attendance at the only pediatric survivorship clinic in a largely rural, multistate region. METHODS: One thousand eight hundred sixteen cancer survivors were diagnosed at age ≤ 25 from 1986 to 2005 while living in the region. Cox models incorporating death as a competing risk and generalized estimating equations calculated hazards ratios (HR) for characteristics measured at the clinic's opening...

PURPOSE: Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is a common and distressing symptom that can persist after cancer treatment has concluded. Bright light therapy has shown preliminary efficacy in reducing CRF, but its impact on other psychosocial factors is unclear. The purpose was to examine the impact of a 1-month light therapy intervention on fatigue, mood, and quality of life in cancer survivors with fatigue. METHODS: This 4-week blinded randomized controlled trial recruited cancer survivors who met diagnostic criteria for CRF...

BACKGROUND: Cognitive changes following breast cancer treatment are likely multifactorial and have been linked to emotional factors, biophysiological factors, and fatigue, among others. Little is known about the contributions of modifiable factors such as stress, loneliness, and sleep quality. The purpose of this study was to explore the direct and indirect effects of perceived stress, loneliness, and sleep quality on perceived cognitive function (PCF) in breast cancer survivors (BCS) after chemotherapy completion...

PURPOSE: The majority of research examining posttraumatic stress symptoms/disorder (PTSS/PTSD) among adult survivors of childhood cancer has been oriented to cancer, assuming that cancer has been the most traumatic experience in their lives. Whether that assumption is valid, and how it might impact assessment of PTSS, is unknown. METHODS: Survivors in the St. Jude Lifetime Cohort study completed an assessment of PTSS without cancer orientation, global psychological functioning, perceived stress, and cancer-related anxiety...

BACKGROUND: This trial examined the efficacy of a clinic-based weight loss intervention in cancer survivors. METHODS: This single-center phase II trial randomized survivors of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies to a 15-week group-based weight loss intervention that included caloric restriction and physical activity (n = 30) or a wait-list control intervention (n = 30). The primary study outcome was body mass. Secondary study outcomes included body composition using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, physical fitness using the 6-min walk test (6MWT), and concentrations of serum biomarkers...

PURPOSE: The transition out of acute cancer treatment has been identified as a time of stress and uncertainty for cancer survivors, but little is known about how caregivers fare during this period. In this paper, we discuss caregiving work up to and including transition from initial care and the needs of caregivers during transition and beyond. METHODS: We held four focus groups with breast, prostate, and colorectal cancer survivors who had completed treatment with intent to cure and two with caregivers for the same population...

PURPOSE: Cognitive symptoms are common after cancer, but poorly associated with neuropsychological results. We previously reported colorectal cancer (CRC) patients had more cognitive impairment than controls. Here, we explore relationships between cognitive symptoms and neuropsychological domains. METHODS: Subjects with CRC (N = 362) and 72 healthy controls completed neuropsychological assessments and Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Cognition (FACT-COG) at baseline (pre-chemotherapy) and 6, 12, and 24 months...

PURPOSE: This study aims to investigate how perceived work ability, job self-efficacy, value of work, and fatigue predict return to work (RTW) in cancer patients who received chemotherapy. METHODS: Data of a before-after study on a multidisciplinary intervention that aimed to enhance RTW was used, consisting of four assessments up to 18 months. Time to partial and full RTW of 76 and 81 participants, respectively, was analyzed in Cox proportional hazard analysis with time-dependent variables...

PURPOSE: The current study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of RetinoQuest in clinical practice, from survivors and healthcare professionals' (HCPs) point of view. METHODS: RetinoQuest is a touch screen computer program to monitor health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of retinoblastoma survivors via patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) targeting children (4-10 years) as evaluated by their parents (proxy measures), adolescents (11-18 years), and adults. Feasibility was evaluated by the actual time taken to complete the PROMs, acceptability of the time as perceived by the users, the content of PROMs in RetinoQuest, and overall satisfaction with RetinoQuest...

PURPOSE: The number of cancer survivors has risen substantially due to improvements in early diagnosis and treatment. Health behaviours such as physical activity (PA) and diet can reduce recurrence and mortality, and alleviate negative consequences of cancer and treatments. Digital behaviour change interventions (DBCIs) have the potential to reach large numbers of cancer survivors. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analyses of relevant studies identified by a search of Medline, EMBASE, PubMed and CINAHL...
