Cancer patients' motives for psychosocial consultation —Oncology social workers' perceptions of 226 patient cases

ConclusionsThe results show that Swedish OSWs' function is multifaceted and that the initial motives among patients rarely predict the content in consultations over time. Based on the diversity of motives, it seems obvious that OSWs (at least in Sweden) need a broad education in the psychology of counselling. It also seems obvious that even if patients initially were referred by health care staff to the OSW due to psychological reactions to being ill, staff should also be attentive to the fact that relational and socio‐economic/juridical issues are of great concern for the patients.

Conclusion: The system delivered stable electric current, which was proved by built-in impedance and current level measurements. Intra-anal sEMG confirmed the ability to target the branches of the autonomous nervous system originating from the sacral nerve roots. Significance: Stimulation outside of t- e operative field during rectal cancer surgery is feasible and may improve the practicality of pelvic intraoperative neuromonitoring.

ConclusionMore extensive PLND at RP provides improved staging information and consequently is associated with lower CSM in D'Amico intermediate‐ and high‐risk PCa patients without evidence of LNI. Hence, more extensive PLND should be recommended in such individuals.
