Health literacy, the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand health information and services needed to make health decisions, is an essential element for early adults (aged 18-44 years) to make informed decisions about cancer. Low health literacy is one of the social determinants of health associated with cancer-related disparities. Over the past several years, a nonprofit organization, a university, and a cancer center in a major urban environment have developed and implemented health literacy programs within healthcare systems and in the community...

PURPOSE: Adult survivors of childhood cancers (ASCCs) are a unique and growing population. Because these individuals were diagnosed in childhood, their developmental stage at diagnosis may influence medical sequelae and perception of their cancer diagnosis and potentially result in long-term complications and challenges. Our aim was to determine how developmental stage, time since diagnosis, and cognitive impairment relate to Canadian ASCC distress and unmet needs. METHODS: Canadian ASCCs aged 19-77 years (N = 115) diagnosed between ages 0 and 5 (n = 25), 6 and 12 (n = 22), or 13 and 18 (n = 68) completed demographic, neurocognitive self-report, depression, and anxiety and unmet needs questionnaires...

PURPOSE: Peripheral neuropathy (PN) is a common and distressing complication from chemotherapy. Symptoms often, but not always, improve with time. The prevalence of long-term PN symptoms in breast cancer survivors is not well known. We sought to explore PN symptoms and associated risk factors among breast cancer survivors at least 2 years out from diagnosis. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional retrospective study investigating the prevalence of patient-reported numbness, tingling, and anesthesia symptoms as a surrogate for PN in breast cancer survivors...

This study aimed to ascertain unmet needs in autologous and allogeneic HCT recipients actively followed in an established long-term survivorship clinic at Roswell Park Cancer Institute from 2006-2012. The Survivor Unmet Needs Survey (SUNS) was mailed to 209 eligible patients and returned by 110 (53% participation rate). SUNS includes 89-items covering 5 domains: Emotional Health, Access and Continuity of Care, Relationships, Financial Concerns, and Information. The top five specific unmet needs for autologous HCT patients were: inability to set future goals/long-term plans; changes in appearance; bad memory/lacking focus; losing confidence in abilities; paying household or other bills...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about opioid prescribing among individuals who have survived cancer. Our aim is to examine a predominantly socio-economically disadvantaged population for differences in opioid prescribing rates among cancer survivors compared with matched controls without a prior diagnosis of cancer. METHODS: This was a retrospective population-wide matched cohort study. Starting in 2010, individuals residing in Ontario, Canada, who were 18 to 64 years of age and at least 5 years past their cancer diagnosis were matched to controls without a prior cancer diagnosis based on sex and calendar year of birth...

BACKGROUND: Young women with breast cancer (YWBC) comprise a group of patients with unique biopsychosocial characteristics with a special perception of needs throughout their disease and survivorship. Contexts marked by restricted allocations and economic constraints might further aggravate the struggle of these patients living within limited resource settings and can demand added requirements for them and their families. OBJECTIVE: To analytically explore the existing knowledge regarding the needs of YWBC in low- and middle- income countries (LMICs)...

BACKGROUND: Lifestyle factors, such as diet, body weight, and physical activity, are linked to better survival after breast cancer (BC) diagnosis. A high percentage of the Malaysian population is overweight or obese. In addition, studies have shown a disparity in survival among Malaysian women compared with other higher-income countries. The Malaysian Breast Cancer Survivorship Cohort (MyBCC) study aims to study lifestyle factors that affect survival in BC survivors. These are the preliminary findings on the nutritional status of Malaysian BC survivors...

REVIEW
Kelly M Malloy, Anna M Pou
Survivorship encompasses the entire therapeutic, psychosocial, functional, and financial experience of living with and through a cancer diagnosis. The period of survivorship starts on the day of the cancer diagnosis and lasts until the end of the survivor's life, regardless of the cause of death. The National Cancer Institute's Office of Cancer Survivorship expands the term "survivor" to include, importantly, caregivers, family, and friends close to the survivor who also live through this period.

Answer questions and earn CME/CNE A measles outbreak originating in California during 2014 and 2015 called attention to the potential for infectious disease outbreaks related to underimmunized populations in the United States and the potential risk to pediatric patients with cancer attending school when such outbreaks occur. Compliance with vaccine recommendations is important for the prevention of hepatitis B-related and human papillomavirus-related cancers and for protecting immunocompromised patients with cancer, and these points are often overlooked, resulting in the continued occurrence of vaccine-preventable neoplastic and infectious diseases and complications...

Oncology healthcare providers have an obligation to support cancer survivors, not just during active treatment, but also long after they have completed therapy. By providing survivorship care education and establishing programs using evidence-based practice, the specific needs and resources required to aid survivors in this new transition and journey can be identified. Survivors need to be guided, informed, and have their unique needs addressed.
