Effects of a Mind Map–Based Life Review Program on Anxiety and Depressive Symptoms on Cancer Patients Undergoing Chemotherapy: A Randomized Controlled Trial

The objective of this study is to determine the effects of the MBLRP on anxiety and depressive symptoms in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Methods A randomized controlled trial with repeated measures was adopted. Eighty-four cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy were recruited from a general hospital in Fujian, China. Participants were randomly assigned to an experimental group (n = 40) or a control group (n = 44). The participants in the experimental group received the MBLRP plus routine care. The participants in the control group received routine care. Outcomes were measured at baseline, on the second day, and at 4 weeks after the MBLRP. Results In terms of anxiety, multivariate test statistics showed significant differences in within-group (F = 11.343, P

Colon cancer, in addition to its physical symptoms, has been linked to mental health issues in patients, according to the study. Dealing with colorectal cancer drug chemotherapy may lead to depression and anxiety in some people. Others are affected by the physical and mental condition of undergoing many therapies at the same time. Throughout the process of diagnosis, a large number of colorectal cancer patients rep...

el S. O’Neil Patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) for monitoring treatment toxicity improve quality of life (QoL) and clinical outcomes. However, no such PROMs exist for sub-Saharan African cancer patients. We aimed to validate the Patient Reported Symptoms-South Africa (PRS-SA) survey, a novel PROM for measuring distress and chemotherapy-related symptoms in South African cancer patients. We enrolled patients at the oncology clinic at Charlotte Maxeke Hospital, Johannesburg. At three separate visits, participants simultaneously completed the PRS-SA survey and several previously validated questionnaires. We co...

CONCLUSIONS: Proactive, telephone based management of toxicities during chemotherapy did not result in fewer visits to the emergency department or hospital admissions. With the rapid rise in remote care because of the covid-19 pandemic, identifying scalable strategies for remote management of patients during cancer treatment is particularly relevant.TRIAL REGISTRATION: ClinicalTrials.gov NCT02485678.PMID:34880055 | DOI:10.1136/bmj-2021-066588

ConclusionsThis study highlights the combined action of sleep problems and physical activity on fatigue during the onset of induction chemotherapy. These two parameters could represent meaningful intervention targets to improve a patient ’s status during chemotherapy.Trial registrationThe study was registered on the WHO trial register (DRKS00007824).

ConclusionNearly one-third of colorectal cancer survivors experienced a cluster of physical and psychosocial symptoms that co-occur with clinically relevant deficits in function.Implications for Cancer SurvivorsImproving the identification of risk factors for having the highest symptom and lowest function profile can inform the development of clinical interventions to mitigate their adverse impact on cancer survivors ’ HRQOL.

Using a large, nationally representative sample, we found that a new diagnosis of bladder cancer was associated with increased burden of mental health diagnoses and medication utilization compared with matched controls. Female patients and those receiving more radical treatments for bladder cancer had higher rates of major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and psychiatric medication utilization. AbstractBackgroundThe presence of psychiatric disorders in patients with cancer is associated with increased morbidity and poorer outcomes. We sought to determine the impact of a new bladder cancer diagnosis on the...
