Relationship between body image and health ‐related quality of life in Chinese cancer survivors during the transitional cancer survivorship
AbstractBackgroundPrevious research has documented the negative impact of cancer treatment on body image and health ‐related quality of life among survivors, and the positive relationship between those factors. However, existing evidence is mainly based on Western studies of female survivors, and there is thus a huge knowledge gap in research on non‐Western cancer survivors.ObjectivesThe aim of the study was to assess body image and health ‐related quality of life, and explore their relationship, among Chinese cancer survivors during transitional survivorship.MethodsChinese cancer survivors with various diagnoses at ...

The challenges on the family unit faced by younger couples affected by prostate cancer; a qualitative study.
ConclusionsA diagnosis of PCa can cause significant disruption to the family unit and the quality of life of its members. Support programmes offering guidance to children/young adults affected by PCa in their family, and addressing the concerns of parents may help families to better adapt. Encouraging clinical professionals to initiate conversations with younger couples about their children may be a way forward in directing appropriate support. Further research is needed to elucidate appropriate, effective supportive interventions. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

Relationship status and quality of the partner relationship in parents of long ‐term childhood cancer survivors: the Swiss Childhood Cancer Survivor Study ‐ Parents
AbstractObjectiveThe intensive and long ‐lasting experience of childhood cancer is a tremendous stressor for the parental relationship. We aimed to i) compare civil status and partner relationship of parents of long‐term childhood cancer survivors with population‐based comparisons, ii) identify cancer‐related characteristics assoc iated with not‐being‐married, and iii) evaluate the quality of the partner relationship.MethodsWe sent questionnaires to parents of survivors aged ≤16 years at diagnosis and ≥20 years at study. Population‐based comparisons were derived from a random sample of the general popul...

Next of kin's motives for psychosocial consultation —Oncology social workers' perceptions of 54 next of kin cases
ConclusionsThe motives show that NOK does not just ask for help to come to terms with distress related to the patient's situation. Based on the diversity of motives, we suggest that OSWs (at least in Sweden) need a broad education in counselling psychology. Furthermore, health care personnel need to be attentive to the NOK's own voice and not reduce it to the voice of the patient and the patient's needs in referrals. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

Trajectories of health behaviors across early childhood cancer survivorship
AbstractObjectiveThe majority of childhood cancer survivors develop at least one late effect subsequent to treatment (eg, cardiovascular disease and obesity). Consistent engagement in recommended health behaviors may mitigate some of these conditions. Researchers have identified early survivorship as a teachable moment, yet few studies have examined positive health behaviors during this period.MethodsFamilies of children with cancer (ages 5 ‐17) were initially recruited following a diagnosis or relapse of cancer. Three years post diagnosis, survivors (n = 82, Mage = 13.3, SD = 3.7) and their...
