PURPOSE: Previous conceptualizations of cancer survivorship have focused on heterogeneous cancer survivors, with little consideration of the validity of conclusions for homogeneous tumour groups. This paper aims to examine the concept of cancer survivorship in the context of colorectal cancer (CRC). METHOD: Rodgers' (1989) Evolutionary Method of Concept Analysis guided this study. A systematic search of PUBMED, CINAHL, PsycINFO and The Cochrane Library was conducted in November 2016 to identify studies of CRC survivorship...

CONTEXT: Many breast cancer patients have unmet informational and psychosocial needs after treatment completion. A psycho-educational intervention may be well-suited to support these patients. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this multicenter randomized controlled trial was to examine the effectiveness of a web-based tailored psycho-educational program (ENCOURAGE) for breast cancer patients which aims to empower patients to take control over prevailing problems. METHODS: Female breast cancer patients from two hospitals in the Netherlands who recently completed (neo-)adjuvant chemotherapy were randomly assigned to standard care or 12-week access to the ENCOURAGE program providing fully automated information, problem-solving strategies, resources and services for reported problems...

Fatigue is a challenge in ovarian cancer survivorship and greatly impacts quality of life. In other cancer populations, fatigue has been associated with abnormal diurnal cortisol patterns. However, little is known about biological and behavioral factors in 5+-year ovarian cancer survivors and potential mechanisms underlying persistent fatigue have not been investigated in this population. Moreover, relationships between neuroendocrine and psychosocial factors in 5+-year ovarian cancer survivors have not been studied...

BACKGROUND: With the improving outcomes of patients with follicular lymphoma (FL), it is imperative to focus on survivorship issues, including the development of second primary malignancies (SPMs). We used a large US database to measure the risk of SPMs among FL survivors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We used the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results-13 registry to identify FL patients from 1992 to 2011. We calculated the risk of SPMs, developing ≥ 6 months after diagnosis, using the standardized incidence ratio (SIR) and absolute excess risk...

Long-term care for head and neck cancer (HNC) survivors is complex and requires coordination among multiple providers. Clinical practice guidelines highlight the role of primary care providers (PCPs) in screening for secondary cancer/recurrence, assessment of late/long-term side effects, and referrals for appropriate specialty management of toxicity. However, these responsibilities may be difficult to meet within the scope of primary care practice. We conducted this study to explore preferences, comfort, and knowledge of PCPs in the care of HNC survivors...

Purpose Prior studies have suggested a need for greater clarity about provider roles in team-based cancer care; however, little is known about patients' preferences regarding which providers handle their care needs after primary cancer treatment. Methods We surveyed women with newly diagnosed stages 0 to II breast cancer who were treated in 2014 and 2015 as reported to the Georgia and Los Angeles SEER registries (N = 2,372; 68% response rate). Patient preferences regarding which provider handles the following care needs after treatment were ascertained: follow-up mammograms, screening for other cancers, general preventive care, and comorbidity management...

INTRODUCTION: In the last decades, long-term outcomes of young women with breast cancer have greatly improved, raising several new survivorship needs which include fertility preservation and pregnancy. The prejudice against pregnancy after breast cancer is still alive among different healthcare providers (e.g. gynecologists, oncologists, general practitioners) and women are often confused and left alone in their family decision planning. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION AND SYNTHESIS: All the available retrospective data confirm pregnancy after breast cancer is safe both for the mother and the offspring, also in women with hormone receptor positive disease...
