DiscussionThe E2C2 intervention offers a pragmatic, scalable approach to delivering guideline-based symptom and function management for cancer patients. Since discrete EHR-imbedded algorithms drive defining aspects of the intervention, the approach can be efficiently disseminated and updated by specifying and modifying these centralized EHR algorithms.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov,NCT03892967.

CONCLUSIONS: Telephone interventions provide a convenient way of supporting self-management of cancer-related symptoms for adults with cancer. These interventions are becoming more important with the shift of care closer to patients' homes, the need for resource/cost containment, and the potential for voluntary sector providers to deliver healthcare interventions. Some evidence supports the use of telephone-delivered interventions for symptom management for adults with cancer; most evidence relates to four commonly experienced symptoms - depression, anxiety, emotional distress, and fatigue. Some telephone-delivered interve...

Telephone interventions for managing symptoms in adults with cancer. This is particularly important at the moment for people with cancer, who have been advised to stay at home due to COVID-19.People with cancer experience a variety of symptoms such as depression, anxiety, fatigue and pain caused by their disease and its treatment. These are often managed, day-to-day, by patients or their family members. Poor management of symptoms may lead to other problems, such as difficulties in carrying out everyday tasks, poor sleep, and poor quality of life.Cancer specialists have developed psychological and educational interventions...

DISCUSSION: Parents' attitudes and behaviors toward their child's headache have a strong relation with the severity of headache attacks. Mothers seem to have more influence than fathers on children's pain and emotional regulation. We suggest that the presence of caregiver-child transmission of maladaptive coping strategies, arising from difficulties expressing emotion, may lead to incorrect management of headache pain, further facilitating headache chronification.

Jeffrey A. SingerPublic health interventions entail non ‐​economic as well as economic trade‐​offs. Some trade ‐​offs can involve other aspects of public health.I havewrittenabout how blanket bans on elective medical procedures combine with the fear already infused in the public to cause crucial delays in necessary health care. This adds to human suffering from causes other than the COVID-19 virus. Many people with chronic conditions, particularlychronic pain patients, are disproportionately affected by reduced access to routine care. Then there ’s the dramatic drop ‐...

Moderate to severe acute pain occurs in 91% of traumatic injury patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) and suboptimal analgesia is common [1-3]. Timely and adequate pain control is crucial, as inadequate management has been associated with increased morbidity and development of chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression [4]. Intravenous (IV) opioids are routinely used for treatment of acute pain in trauma patients, but increasing outpatient use of buprenorphine for opioid use disorder (OUD) and chronic pain poses a new challenge to traditional pain management strategies [5].
