REVIEW
Marianne Davies, Emily A Duffield
Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICPIs), in the form of monoclonal antibodies against CTLA-4, PD-1, and PD-L1, have dramatically changed the treatment approach in several advanced cancers. Due to their mechanism of action, these novel agents are associated with a unique spectrum of immune-mediated adverse events (imAEs), with a safety profile that indicates they are better tolerated than traditional chemotherapeutic agents. This article aims to provide education on the current knowledge about imAEs associated with ICPI treatment, including strategies and tools for the prompt identification, evaluation, and optimal management of these events...

PROBLEM: Children undergoing cancer treatment experience detrimental adverse side effects that may be addressed with complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) such as art therapy. The purpose of this research was to examine the effects of art therapy in pediatric patients living with cancer. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: An integrative literature review was conducted using the CINAHL, OVID Medline, and PsycINFO databases. Studies were included if they were a primary source utilizing an art therapy intervention in children with cancer age birth to 18years old, was published between the year 2000 and 2016, and written in the English language...

Importance: Patients undergoing total laryngectomy (TL) are at high risk for 30-day hospital readmission. Strategies to decrease the readmission rate remain unknown. Objectives: To assess the association of a comprehensive perioperative TL education program with unplanned readmissions; to determine the program's association with the rate of readmissions for stomal or tracheoesophageal puncture (TEP) complications and patient and caregiver knowledge of and preparedness for TL...

Regular reflective practice group sessions, focusing on enhancing mindfulness, were piloted as part of a support programme for researchers in a clinical oncology setting. METHODS: As a previous systematic review highlighted a wide variety of approaches and a lack of published evidence on the use of specific models for reflective practice in health care, a scoping review of existing literature describing reflective practice models preceded piloting the programme with the research team...

BACKGROUND: As in other developing countries, the nations of Sub-Saharan Africa have seen an increase in the incidence of colorectal cancer. Repeatedly, the indigenous populations have shown a skewing of incidence in favour of patients below the age of 50. As part of a larger study, and through funding from the Medical research Council of South Africa, the Wits MRC Oncology group has set out to identify the epidemiological characteristics and disease progression of patients under the age of 50 presenting with colorectal cancer...

PURPOSE: Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) can be prevented in most patients with use of guideline-recommended antiemetic regimens. However, studies have suggested that adherence to antiemetic guidelines is suboptimal. Oncology nurses, as part of a multidisciplinary team, can help promote appropriate antiemetic prophylaxis. Therefore, nurses were surveyed to assess antiemetic guideline awareness and practice patterns of antiemetic use, determine adherence to guideline recommendations, and query barriers to adherence...

This review highlights interacting etiologies contributing to development of secondary breast cancer to complement guidelines for surveillance and survivorship care and make recommendations for clinical practice. Treatment exposures determine Children's Oncology Group breast cancer surveillance guidelines; those treated with cumulative doses ≥20 Gy chest irradiation should undergo annual magnetic resonance imaging and mammography after age 25 years or 8 years after exposure, whichever comes last...

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between nurses' organizational and managerial resources (ie, perceived organizational support and transformational leadership) and their quality of patient care, and second, the mediating role of job satisfaction in these relationships. Participants were 510 nurses from 25 out of 29 French pediatric oncology units. Structural equation modeling results revealed that perceived organizational support and transformational leadership were related to nurses' perceived quality of care and that job satisfaction acted as a mediator between these 2 antecedents (ie, organizational and managerial determinants) and this outcome (ie, quality of care)...
