BACKGROUND: Participating in regular physical activity is a recommended cancer recovery strategy for breast cancer survivors. However, tailored support services are not widely available and most survivors are insufficiently active to obtain health benefits. Delivering tailored programs via the Internet offers one promising approach. However, recent evaluations of such programs suggest that major improvements are needed to ensure programs meet the needs of users and are delivered in an engaging way...

PURPOSE: Physical activity can enhance quality of life in cancer survivors, but this conclusion is based largely on research linking moderate-to-vigorous physical activity with quality of life. Light-intensity physical activity may be more feasible than more strenuous exercise for many older cancer survivors. This study reports a secondary analysis of baseline data from a lifestyle behavior intervention trial and examines the hypothesis that older cancer survivors who engage in more light-intensity physical activity, independent of moderate-to-vigorous activity, will report better mental quality of life...

BACKGROUND: Well Differentiated Thyroid Cancer (WDTC) is the most common endocrine neoplasia and its incidence is rising. Studies have reported an increased risk of Second Primary Cancer (SPC) in WDTC survivors, but its relationship with radioiodine treatment (RAIT) and other risk factors remains controversial. We evaluated whether RAIT is an independent risk factor for SPC in WDTC patients. METHODS: This was a retrospective single-center study. We included 2031 patients with WDTC diagnosed between 1998 and 2009, treated and followed in our reference tertiary cancer center...

INTRODUCTION: Survivors of muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) experience physical and psychosocial side effects of cancer diagnosis and treatment. These negative side effects have a crucial impact on their health-related quality of life (HRQoL). To date, there is evidence that rehabilitation interventions such as physical activity and psychosocial support have a positive effect on the HRQoL of cancer survivors. Unfortunately, there are no specific guidelines for rehabilitation or survivorship programmes for MIBC survivors...

INTRODUCTION: Cancer patients live longer with effective anti-cancer therapy and supportive care. About 30% of cancer survivors (non-palliative cancer patients who completed treatment) suffer from chronic pain, which will be managed by their primary care physician (PCP). The aim of this study was to assess practice patterns and treatment barriers in the management of chronic pain in cancer survivors among PCPs. METHODS: A survey using a 16-item questionnaire was sent to PCPs across Canada...

Prior research has demonstrated poorer patient-provider communication ratings among African American compared to White patients. The quality of patient-provider communication has been shown to impact treatment outcomes among cancer patients. A secondary data analysis design was used to determine the relationship of six patient-provider communication variables on the physical health quality of life (PHQOL) and mental health quality of life (MHQOL) of African American and White cancer patients (N = 479). We also examined whether the relationship between communication patterns and QOL differed based on race/ethnicity...

Body-mind-spirit integrated psychotherapy reflects the core value of nursing by emphasizing the inseparable concept of body, mind, and spirit and caring for the holistic needs of the patient. Body-mind-spirit integrated psychotherapy was developed based on Western psychotherapy (positive psychology and forgiveness therapy), traditional Chinese medicine, and the Eastern philosophies of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. The present paper describes the holistic concepts that underpin this therapeutic approach...

The acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is one of the first cancer for which emerged the particularity of the adolescent and young adult population. After decades of poorly concerted approaches, adult and pediatric haematologists found out that adolescents treated according to pediatric approaches had a better outcome than those treated in adult protocols. Therefore, pediatric-inspired therapies have been successfully implemented in the young adult population, leading to decreased criteria for allogeneic stem cell transplantation...
