Information needs and decision ‐making preferences of older women offered a choice between surgery and primary endocrine therapy for early breast cancer
ConclusionsWomen strongly preferred face to face information. Written formats were also helpful but not computer‐based resources. Information that was found helpful to women in the DM process was identified. The study demonstrates many women achieved their preferred DM style, with a preference for involvement, and expressed low levels of decision regret. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

When trust is threatened: qualitative study of parents ’ perspectives on problematic clinical relationships in child cancer care
ConclusionsGiven the complexity of childhood cancer care, problems with clinical care are inevitable. By engaging in containment work, parents met their needs to feel secure in the face of these problems, but the extent to which parents should have to do this work is debatable. Parents could benefit from support to seek help when problems arise which threaten their trust in clinicians. Attachment theory can guide clinicians in giving this support. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

Individual training at the undergraduate level to promote competence in breaking bad news in oncology
Abstract ObjectiveTraining medical students in breaking bad news (BBN) in oncology may be key to improve patient care in an area where many physicians tend to be uncomfortable. Given the lack of evidence in the literature, this study aimed to assess empirically the impact of two teaching strategies to prepare students for the task of BBN in oncology: one‐to‐one simulated patient (SP) training with individual feedback (intervention group) vs. small‐group SP training with collective feedback (comparison group). MethodsFourth‐year students (N = 236) were randomly assigned to the intervention or compariso...

Mothers with breast cancer: A mixed ‐method systematic review on the impact on the parent‐child relationship
ConclusionsFindings indicated that the diagnosis of BC is accompanied by an array of challenges that affect parental roles and parenting. Further studies are needed in order to explore these issues more sensitively. For now, however, the evidence suggests that the families of women with BC, and particularly the women themselves, may benefit from informal and formal support aimed at helping them cope effectively with this challenging life event.

Depressive symptoms are found to be potential adverse effects of androgen deprivation therapy in older prostate cancer patients: a 15 ‐month prospective, observational study
Abstract ObjectivesTo evaluate the association between androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) and depression and to identify the risk factors for depressive symptoms among prostate cancer patients who received ADT. MethodsWe conducted a prospective, longitudinal, controlled study and assessed three groups of older patients: the ADT group (men who were presented with maximum androgen block); the radical prostatectomy group (RP) (PCa control group: men who underwent radical prostatectomy without ADT); and the BPH group (men who had benign prostatic hyperplasia). All patients completed the demographic questionnaire at baseline an...

The role of body image dissatisfaction in the association between treatment ‐related scarring or disfigurement and psychological distress in adult survivors of childhood cancer

Successful treatment of body image dissatisfaction has the potential to eliminate a substantial proportion of psychological distress related to scarring/disfigurement among adult survivors of childhood cancer.

Preloss grief in family caregivers during end ‐of‐life cancer care: A nationwide population‐based cohort study
ConclusionsSevere preloss grief symptoms were significantly associated with distress, low preparedness, and little communication during caregiving. Thus, severe preloss grief symptoms may be a key indicator for complications in caregivers of cancer patients in an end‐of‐life trajectory. Targeted interventions are needed to support family caregivers with severe preloss grief symptoms. Development of preloss grief assessment tools and interventions should be a priority target in future research. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)

Psychological and Clinical Correlates of Posttraumatic Growth in Cancer. A Systematic and Critical Review
ConclusionsThe evaluation of PTG in cancer patients is worthy, since it may promote a better adaption to the illness. However, many investigations do not explicitly refer to the medical nature of the trauma, and they may have not completely captured the full spectrum of positive reactions in cancer patients. Future research should better investigate issues such as health attitudes; the risks of future recurrences; and the type, quality, and efficacy of medical treatments received and their influence on PTG in cancer patients.

Marital adjustment in the context of female breast cancer: A systematic review
ConclusionsMost studies evidenced an association between psychosocial variables and marital adjustment for both women and their partners. Some important dimensions such as communication patterns, coping strategies, and social support dynamics were identified as potential targets for psychological interventions. Some variables, however, were explored only in a few studies which limit our conclusions. Future studies should explore the role these variables and other relational and emotional variables play in promoting marital adjustment after BC. (Source: Psycho-Oncology)
