Introduction: Limited studies have examined potential risk factors associated with the fatigue experience of a sample of Puerto Rican men treated with radiotherapy for non-metastatic prostate cancer. Identifying these factors may provide initial information about targets for individualized interventions, leading to more effective management of fatigue in this population. Purpose: To examine the relationship of age, body max index, depressive symptoms, physical activity, and sleep disturbance with fatigue during radiotherapy for prostate cancer...

This secondary analysis studied 50 transcripts of women who shared day-to-day experiences of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and characterized temporal (time-associated) features of living with LUTS. Findings revealed two overarching time-associated themes: The Complexity of LUTS and The Quest for Empowerment over LUTS. Findings suggest that the temporal burden of LUTS is the accumulated impact of symptoms and symptom management on women's daily lives within multiple contexts across the life course. Increasing nurses' knowledge of the temporal context of LUTS may heighten awareness and improve symptom detection and management...

Background: Radical cystectomy(RC) often leads to postoperative morbidity and complications. We conducted a pilot study on the effectiveness of multimodal prehabilitation, a preoperative conditioning method shown to be effective for colorectal surgery, in bladder cancer patients soon to undergo RC. We assessed patients' adherence to the prehabilitation regimen and changes in their physical condition. Methods: Thirty-two bladder cancer patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering from February to August 2015 scheduled for RC were included in a standardized prehabilitation program...

Introduction: African-American men have higher rates of prostate cancer and more advanced cancer when diagnosed than men of other ethnicities. Purpose: To explore the perspectives and shared experiences of rural African-American men when it comes to interactions with healthcare providers, shared decision-making, and information on prostate cancer and screening. Methods: A convenience sample of African-American men in four rural counties in the southeastern United States agreed to participate...

The diagnosis and treatment of patients with rare inherited metabolic disorders associated with recurrent and often obstructive kidney stones are important to the prevention of chronic kidney disease or end stage renal disease. Two case studies in this article describe the diagnosis and management of cystinuria, the most common rare kidney stone disorder.

Kidney stones, especially those that present in childhood/adolescence, may be due to rare inherited disorders such as cystinuria. Early recognition and prompt treatment can help reduce or even prevent the serious long-term complications of these rare stone disorders.

Bladder cancer is one of the most common cancers among urologic cancers. Intravesical instillation following transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) is used as a treatment of bladder cancer. According to results of this study, before and after intravesical instillations following TURBT have no effect on symptom outcomes of patients with superficial bladder cancer.

REVIEW
David R Bayliss, Jed Duff, Philip Stricker, Kim Walker
A literature review was done using the Cognitive-Social Health Information Processing (C-SHIP) framework to identify how and why men diagnosed with prostate cancer choose active surveillance over other treatment options. Findings indicated men who choose active surveillance have a stronger preference for active or collaborative decision-making than those who choose other treatments. Men primarily choose active surveillance to avoid the side effects of incontinence and erectile dysfunction. This literature review informed the study by Bayliss, Duff, Strieker, and Walker (2016) and found physician recommendation to be the most influential factor when patients make a treatment decision...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Tracie Gadler, Cynthia Crist, Kendra Brandstein, Susan M Schneider
Patient anxiety related to prostate cancer surgery may lead to reduced patient satisfaction. Repeated reinforcement of pre-operative education to reduce anxiety greatly impacts provider time. Improved knowledge retention of what to expect postoperatively may reduce patient anxiety. This quality improvement project demonstrated that a take-home educational video supports patient knowledge retention, reduces patient anxiety, increases patient satisfaction, and saves postoperative provider time

This article presents findings of a quality improvement (QI) project using the DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve, and control) model designed to decrease the rate of emergency department (ED) visits and nurse advice line calls after ureteroscopic stone surgery. Results indicated that nurse-initiated follow- up phone calls can decrease ED visits.

Same-day cancellation of outpatient cystoscopy was recognized as a growing problem in a New Mexico Veterans Administration regional urology clinic. A multidisciplinary team initiated a performance improvement project using the VA-TAMMCS method to address the problem. The resulting changes in patient education significantly reduced cystoscopy cancellations and improved overall patient satisfaction.

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Ashley Bakke
Chronicaly ill pre-teens and adolescents often spend months as inpatients while undergoing treatment. This population includes but is not limited to oncology, transplant, physically disabled, and medically fragile pediatric patients. Sexual health education is often considered less important than the complex disease states and medical issues faced by pediatric inpatients. Many clinicians fail to realize the value of providing this guidance as a necessary part of the physical and psychosocial health of these young patients...
