AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to explore the lived experiences of patients on receiving a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. BACKGROUND: Persons with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma are often diagnosed with cancer when at an advanced stage. This may arise due to a lack of screening programs and delays in help seeking as the symptoms experienced are fairly non-specific in nature. Consequently, receiving an unexpected diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma may pose a psychosocial challenge to the individual...

Objectives Breaking bad news can be a very distressing situation for both patients and physicians. Physician communication behavior should therefore match patients' communication preferences. The aim of this study was to characterize the content of bad news from the patients' perspective. Patients' preferences for communication of bad news as well as the fit to communication behavior displayed by physicians were also investigated. Finally, consequences of a mismatch between patients' preferences and physician communication were investigated in relation to psychological distress in patients...

With over 300 million active users, Twitter is among the largest online news and social networking services in existence today. Open access to information on Twitter makes it a valuable source of data for research on social interactions, sentiment analysis, content diffusion, link prediction, and the dynamics behind human collective behaviour in general. Here we use Twitter data to construct co-occurrence language networks based on hashtags and based on all the words in tweets, and we use these networks to study link prediction by means of different methods and evaluation metrics...

PURPOSE: The discussion of a cancer diagnosis and prognosis often is difficult.

METHODS: This exploratory, descriptive, qualitative study used semistructured interviews. RESULTS: Thematic analysis identified two major themes: communication and information seeking. The findings illustrate a discrepancy between patient preference for direct disclosure of the diagnosis and that of families...

PURPOSE: Empowering patients with cancer requires that they be continuously informed about their condition. In some Eastern cultures, this concept is often opposed by caregivers. We aim to compare the extent of disclosure desired by actual and presumed patients with cancer and their relatives in our practice. METHODS: Nine questions reflecting possible bad news communication to patients from diagnosis to the end of life were designed to investigate the extent of desired disclosure and were answered by 100 patients (cohort I) and 103 accompanying relatives (cohort II) in an outpatient setting...

Nearly two decades ago, Hossam Haick was working on a Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology when terrible news hit: his friend and officemate had leukemia. It was Haick's first close encounter with cancer and the physical toll its treatment could wreak on a person. "He's fine now, but it was very difficult to see him suffer," Haick remembers.
