Exercise Interventions to Manage Fatigue in Women With Gynecologic Cancer: A Systematic Review. Oncol Nurs Forum. 2019 Jan 13;46(1):71-82 Authors: Maqbali M, Hughes C, Dunwoody L, Rankin JP, Hacker ED, Gracey J Abstract PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION: Fatigue has a negative impact on the quality of life of patients with cancer. The aim of this review is to evaluate studies on the effectiveness of exercise interventions in reducing fatigue in women with gynecologic cancer. LITERATURE SEARCH: The review was conducted according to the PRISMA guidelines using the CINAHL®, MEDLINE®, EMBASE, PsycINFO®, and Cochrane Library databases. The Critical Appraisal Skills Programme was used for quality assessment. DATA EVALUATION: Five studies met the inclusion criteria. SYNTHESIS: Evidence suggests that exercise interventions result in significant reductions in fatigue in women with gynecologic cancer. However, the current evidence is limited. Additional studies are required to address the dose-dependent outcomes of exercise interventions on fatigue in women with gynecologic cancer. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING: Findings support the positive effects of exercise interventions in reducing fatigue in women with gynecologic cancer, suggesting that healthcare professionals may consider including exercise programs into management plans for this population.

ConclusionsOverall HCAHPS satisfaction scores following lung resection for cancer were high and negatively associated with increasing length of stay. Patient satisfaction may be impacted more by the perception of effective communication during prolonged hospitalizations than by complications.
