PURPOSE: Although there is a growing emphasis on supportive care for cancer patients, those with colorectal cancer (CRC) who have ostomies require special attention in terms of their physical, psychological, spiritual, and social needs. However, there has been a lack of significant progress in meeting the supportive care needs of CRC survivors with ostomies. To bridge this gap, we conducted a prospective longitudinal study to track the trends in supportive care needs among CRC survivors with ostomies and identify any predictors over 6-month period...

OBJECTIVES: Radiation dermatitis is the most common reaction to radiotherapy, almost all breast cancer patients receive radiotherapy on an outpatient basis. Currently, there are no studies on the experience of radiation dermatitis and the ability to self-manage it. Therefore, we aimed to use qualitative approaches to gain a deeper understanding of the actual experiences and self-management ability in order to provide a reference for further improving the effectiveness of self-management and to optimize symptom management strategies...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer (BC) patients with extended survival show a higher incidence of frailty. This study aimed to develop and validate a novel model combining sociodemographic factors (SF) and disease-related factors (DRF) to identify frailty in BC patients with extended survival. METHODS: This cross-sectional study examined data from 1167 patients admitted to a large urban academic medical centre. Three types of predictive models were constructed in the training set (817 patients): the SF model, the DRF model, and the SF + DRF model (combined model)...

BACKGROUND: Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is increasingly used as a complementary treatment to address psychological and physical wellbeing. However, it is unknown how it can be leveraged in adult cancer care. This mixed methods program evaluation aimed to assess patient-reported benefits and satisfaction with the virtual DMT in an academic oncology setting.

PURPOSE: Family caregivers play a critical role in providing care for patients with cancer. However, the quality of their caregiving can be greatly impacted if the demands and expectations they experience are not identified. Therefore, this study aimed to explore the demands and perceived expectations of caregivers while caring for cancer patients. METHODS: This qualitative study was conducted from June 2022 to September 2023. Face-to-face and in-depth semi-structured interviews were conducted to collect the experiences of 19 Iranian family caregivers of patients with cancer...

PURPOSE: The decline in physical performance, assessed by physical tests such as the timed up and go (TUG) test, is a consequence of reduced physiological reserves at higher levels of a hierarchical process. This occurs due to changes in muscle architecture, including atrophy and fat infiltration into the muscles, which in turn lead to changes in muscle function, resulting in reduced muscle strength and power and, consequently, affecting physical performance. This study investigated predictive factors for physical performance in breast cancer survivor (BCS), focusing on intramuscular adipose tissue (IMAT), quadríceps muscle area (QMA), and muscular power...
