PURPOSE: Bladder cancer (BC) is a common disease with disparate treatment options and variable outcomes. Despite the disease's high prevalence, little is known of the lived experience of affected patients. National patient experience surveys suggest that those with BC have poorer experiences than those with other common cancers. The aim of this review is to identify first-hand accounts of the lived experiences of diagnosis through to survivorship. METHOD: This is a systematic review of the qualitative evidence reporting first-hand accounts of the experiences of being diagnosed with, treated for and surviving bladder cancer...

PURPOSE: Patients with human papillomavirus (HPV)-related head and neck cancer (HNC) have a better prognosis relative to other types of HNC, making survivorship an emerging and critical issue. Exercise is a core component of survivorship care, but little is known about how many survivors of HPV-related HNC can safely be advised to start exercising on their own, as opposed to needing further evaluation or supervised exercise. METHODS: We utilized guidelines to identify health issues that would indicate value of further evaluation prior to being safely prescribed unsupervised exercise...

BACKGROUND: The median survival of glioblastoma is 12-14 months with less than 10% of patients surviving at least 2 years from diagnosis. Patients diagnosed with glioblastoma face poor prognosis, significant symptom burden, and high care needs. The aim of this study is to undertake a literature review to document the issues encountered by long-term survivors of glioblastoma, a small but important subset of patients. METHODS: MEDLINE, PsychInfo, and EMBASE were searched with core concepts: (1) glioblastoma, (2) survivor, and (3) terms pertaining to survivorship issues...
