Parental cancer: Characteristics of users of child ‐centred counselling versus individual psycho‐oncological treatment

ConclusionsThe findings demonstrate that patients and partners self‐referring to PO or COSIP are highly burdened. COSIP users experience different psychosocial burden than PO users. As poor mental state of parents is a risk factor for the development of mental problems in children, parents using only PO may benefit from additional child‐centred support. Accordingly, the need for COSIP should be assessed continuously during PO of patients with children ≤21 years.

ConclusionsChemotherapy-na ïve patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer experience a substantial burden from their condition. Furthermore, as castration-resistant prostate cancer progresses from the non-metastatic stage to the early metastatic (pre-chemotherapy) stage, certain symptoms become more common and disturb patients’ lives to a greater extent. The resulting conceptual model for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer highlights areas that are not adequately assessed with current patient-reported outcome instruments.
