Cancer patients' motives for psychosocial consultation —Oncology social workers' perceptions of 226 patient cases
ConclusionsThe results show that Swedish OSWs' function is multifaceted and that the initial motives among patients rarely predict the content in consultations over time. Based on the diversity of motives, it seems obvious that OSWs (at least in Sweden) need a broad education in the psychology of counselling. It also seems obvious that even if patients initially were referred by health care staff to the OSW due to psychological reactions to being ill, staff should also be attentive to the fact that relational and socio‐economic/juridical issues are of great concern for the patients.

Do Australian adolescents' and young adults' experiences of cancer care influence their quality of life?
ConclusionsThe results suggest that, for most AYAs' quality of life outcomes, positive experiences of age‐appropriate communication and emotional support may underpin the effect of positive experiences of care throughout the cancer care pathway. The results support the need for communication and support tailored to an AYA audience, as recognised by recent Australian and international guidelines on the care of AYAs with cancer.

Healthcare professionals ’ perspective on return to work in cancer survivors
ConclusionsThe training of professionals should increase awareness of the assumptions they make about cancer survivors in regard to RTW. Additionally, training might elaborate professionals' view of their role in the interaction with cancer survivors regarding return to work. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

Accurate understanding of infertility risk among families of adolescent males newly diagnosed with cancer
ConclusionsMost adolescents and parents inaccurately reported infertility risk, and more poorly estimated risk. Research is needed to identify additional factors associated with accurate understanding of cancer‐related infertility risk. Providers should be supported with user‐friendly educational tools to promote awareness of infertility risk. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

Parental cancer: Characteristics of users of child ‐centred counselling versus individual psycho‐oncological treatment
ConclusionsThe findings demonstrate that patients and partners self‐referring to PO or COSIP are highly burdened. COSIP users experience different psychosocial burden than PO users. As poor mental state of parents is a risk factor for the development of mental problems in children, parents using only PO may benefit from additional child‐centred support. Accordingly, the need for COSIP should be assessed continuously during PO of patients with children ≤21 years. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

Predictors of emotional distress a year or more after diagnosis of cancer: A systematic review of the literature
ConclusionsThis review supports current clinical guidance advising early assessment of distress as a marker of vulnerability to persistent problems. Additionally, neuroticism is also indicated as a useful marker of vulnerability. However, the review also highlights that more sophisticated research designs, capable of identifying the psychological processes that underlie the association between these marker variables and persistent distress, are needed before more effective early interventions can be developed.

Exploring associations between psychiatric disorder, psychological distress, and health care utilization in cancer patients
ConclusionPsychiatric disorder and psychological distress were associated with mental health care use and costs. Psychological distress was associated with complementary health care use.

Being Mindful of Mindfulness Interventions in Cancer: a systematic review of intervention reporting and study methodology
ConclusionsMindfulness is increasingly considered a standard therapy in psycho‐oncology.

Health Related Quality of Life and Care Satisfaction Outcomes: Informing Psychosocial Oncology Care among Latina and African ‐American Young Breast Cancer Survivors
Abstract ObjectiveWhen breast cancer occurs in young women, the medical, physical, psychosocial, and overall impacts can be more severe warranting targeted medical and psychosocial oncology care. Yet, despite their risk for poorer survival and survivorship outcomes, little research has focused on this group with critical gaps concerning ethnic minorities who are particularly medically vulnerable. Therefore, this preliminary study examined demographic characteristics and patient centered outcomes i.e., health related quality of life, quality care satisfaction to inform targeted psychosocial oncology care among African‐Ame...

Effects and moderators of psychosocial interventions on quality of life, and emotional and social function in patients with cancer: an individual patient data meta ‐analysis of 22 RCTs.
ConclusionsPSI significantly improved QoL, EF, and SF, with small overall effects. However, the effects differed by several demographic, clinical, personal, and intervention‐related characteristics. Our study highlights the beneficial effects of CST in patients treated with chemotherapy, the importance of targeted interventions, and the need of developing interventions tailored to the specific needs of elderly patients.
