BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Post thoracotomy pain syndrome (PTPS) remains a common complication of thoracic surgery with significant impact on patients' quality of life. Management usually involves a multidisciplinary approach that includes oral and topical analgesics, performing appropriate interventional techniques, and coordinating additional care such as physiotherapy, psychotherapy and rehabilitation. A variety of interventional procedures have been described to treat PTPS that is inadequately managed with systemic or topical analgesics...

BACKGROUND: Older adults receiving cancer therapy have heightened risk for treatment-related toxicity. Geriatric assessment (GA) can identify impairments, which may contribute to vulnerability and adverse outcomes. GA management interventions can address these impairments and have the potential to improve outcomes when implemented. METHODS: We conducted a randomized pilot study comparing GA with management interventions versus usual care in patients with stage III/IV solid tumor malignancies (N = 71)...

This review of pain management in lung cancer is based on the presentation of four cases of thoracic oncology patients with pain at various stages of their disease. The approach will be multidisciplinary, involving a thoracic oncologist, radiologist, thoracic and orthopaedic spine surgeon, radiation therapist, pain medicine specialist, and palliative care specialist. This multispecialty approach to the management of different painful presentations in thoracic oncology will demonstrate the complexity of each case and the improved patient outcomes which result from the involvement of different disciplines working in concert...

REVIEW
Sarah A Birken, Deborah K Mayer
Survivorship care planning is a process that focuses on the transition from active cancer treatment to a coordinated and comprehensive care system to address patients' unique needs. Survivorship care plans (SCPs) are increasingly viewed as a key component of survivorship care planning. SCPs have been recommended for >10 years to promote care coordination, communication, and record-keeping efficiency; however, SCP implementation has been challenging. We elaborate on the challenges of SCP implementation, summarize evidence regarding potential methods of promoting SCP implementation, and describe a research agenda for generating more definitive evidence to support SCP implementation in practice...

BACKGROUND: Dementia, even more than cancer, demands long-term care. While in Indonesia cancer is accepted as a disease requiring caregiving, dementia is still considered "a normal condition." These differences might affect the experiences of caregivers, especially those relating to social health, the subject of our study. We aim to describe and compare the lived experiences of family caregivers of patients with cancer (PWC) with those of patients with dementia (PWD) in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and to explore the role of their social health in these experiences...

OBJECTIVES: Ovarian carcinoma is one of the highest incidence of tumors in women, and the generation, development and prognosis of epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC) remains an open field of study. The role of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in epithelial ovarian carcinoma is an emerging area of research. MATERIALS AND METHODS: LncRNA PCA3 expression was determined in EOC and normal ovarian tissues by RT-PCR. Phenotypes indicative of tumor progression and aggressiveness, including cell proliferation, migration, invasion, and expression of related molecules, were analysed in EOC cell following knockdown of lncRNA PCA3 by transfection with small interfering RNA (siRNA)...

Not all women 50-74 years received biennial mammography and the situation is worse in rural areas. Accountable care organizations (ACO) emphasize coordinated care, use of electronic health system, and preventive quality measures and these practices may improve their patients' breast cancer screening rate. Using medical record data of 8,347 women patients aged 50-74 years from eight rural ACO clinics in Nebraska, this study examined patient-, provider-, and county-level barriers and facilitators for breast cancer screening...

Patient navigation is a patient-centered intervention that uses trained personnel to identify patient-level barriers, including financial, cultural, logistical, and educational obstacles to health care and then mitigate these barriers to facilitate complete and timely access to health services. For example, to assist a Medicaid patient seeking postpartum care, a patient navigator could help her schedule an appointment before her insurance benefits change, coordinate transportation and child care, give her informational pamphlets on contraception options, and accompany her to the appointment to ensure her questions are answered...

The burden of cancer in low- to middle-income countries is growing and is expected to rise dramatically while resources to manage this disease remain inadequate. All authorities for the management of cancer recommend multidisciplinary care. Educational efforts by international organizations to assist local professionals in caring for their patients tend to have a lasting impact because they empower local professionals and enhance their skills. A multidisciplinary cancer management course was designed by American Society of Clinical Oncology staff and local experts to provide a roadmap for cross-specialty interaction and coordination of care in Zimbabwe...

Population health management (PHM) is a new health care model being implemented. It has been defined as "the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group." This includes health outcomes and patterns of health determinants, and policies and interventions that link these two. Moving from a fee-for-service payment system to a quality- or value-based system, this model places on the clinician more responsibility for the costs of health care and its reimbursements...
