Decisional regret and choice of breast reconstruction following mastectomy for breast cancer: A systematic review
ConclusionThe available research is yet to provide a clear understanding of the many inter‐related issues involved in DR. Given the consensus that pre‐surgical information was inadequate, making standardised educational material more widely available and increasing use of breast care nurses in pre‐operative patient education roles may be useful.

A Dyadic Analysis of Stress Processes in Latinas with Breast Cancer and Their Family Caregivers
ConclusionsAs predicted by the stress process model, stress and family conflict were predictive of psychological distress in breast cancer survivors and their family caregivers. Significant partner effects in the APIMeM suggest that there are some dyadic influences, particularly from caregivers’ stress to survivors’ perceptions of exacerbated family conflict. These findings show how strained family relationships can aggravate the well‐being of cancer survivors and their family caregivers through this challenging experience. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

Outcomes of an enhancement study with additional psychoeducational sessions for healthy siblings of a child with cancer during inpatient family ‐oriented rehabilitation
Abstract ObjectiveChronic illness of a child puts healthy children of the family at risk of distress. Previous studies have demonstrated that healthy children's psychological symptoms can be reduced when the child knows more about the disease. So far, there is limited evidence of the effectiveness of psychoeducational interventions for healthy children. AimsTo compare the effectiveness of an inpatient family‐oriented rehabilitation program with vs. without additional psychoeducational sessions for healthy children of families with children with cancer.

A Systematic Review of Quantitative Observational Studies Investigating Psychological Distress in Testicular Cancer Survivors
ConclusionsMany TC survivors do not experience significant psychological morbidity, but anxiety and FCR are prevalent. Inadequate coping resources (e.g. low SES and social support) and strategies (e.g. avoidance) and greater symptoms/side effects were associated with poorer outcomes. Theoretically‐driven prospective studies would aid understanding of how outcomes change over time and how to screen for risk. Age and gender appropriate interventions that prevent and manage issues specific to TC survivors are also needed. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

The influence of coping strategies on subsequent well ‐being in older patients with cancer: a comparison with two control groups.
ConclusionsCoping strategies influence subsequent well‐being in patients with cancer, but the impact is different in the age groups. Palliative reacting was the only coping strategy that predicted well‐being (i.e. distress) in OCP and is therefore, especially in this population, a target for coping skills interventions.

Body Image Dissatisfaction in Patients Undergoing Breast Reconstruction: Examining the Roles of Breast Symmetry and Appearance Investment
Abstract ObjectiveReconstruction as part of treatment for breast cancer is aimed at mitigating body image concerns post‐mastectomy. Although algorithms have been developed to objectively assess breast reconstruction outcomes, associations between objectively quantified breast aesthetic appearance and patient‐reported body image outcomes have not been examined. Further, the role of appearance investment in explaining a patient's body image is not well understood. We investigated the extent to which objectively quantified breast symmetry and patient‐reported appearance investment were associated with body image dissati...

Covariates were age, education, time since diagnosis, comorbidity, and presence of metastases. ResultsEmotional distress was reported by 37% of par...
