Alison Llewellyn, Claire Howard, Candida McCabe
PURPOSE: Recent decades have seen improvements in UK breast cancer services and treatments. Despite this, it is recognised that a range of patients' psychological and emotional needs remain unmet, both at the time of treatment and into survivorship. Using data from two distinct cohorts of women: those treated with radiotherapy for breast cancer historically, and women treated more recently, this study sought to identify and explore those needs and concerns that have continued to persist, despite advances in treatment and care...

PURPOSE: Family communication is a known protective factor for minor children's psychological health following the death of a parent, but there is little research describing communication within such families specifically from the perspective of the children. The purpose of this study was therefore to explore communication in parentally bereaved families from the perspective of the children and surviving parent. METHODS: Interviews with four parents and four children from four families were analyzed using inductive content analysis...

PURPOSE: Young people (YP) returning to school after a cancer diagnosis and treatment have to decide who has the right to know about their cancer experiences and how to distribute this information to peers. Young people face unique challenges in this area because of their life stage, their need to reintegrate with peers, and their own approach to their disease and treatment. This paper explores the perspectives of young people as they return to school during and after curative cancer treatment...

PURPOSE: In 2017 almost 25,000 Belgians between 40 and 60 years (38% of new diagnoses) were diagnosed with cancer. With increasing life expectancy the chance augments that these patients still have older parents alive. This implies that oncology care should also take into account the impact cancer may have on (the relationship with) older parents. The purpose of this study was to explore how cancer patients communicate and deal with their older parents during the illness trajectory. METHOD: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 11 cancer patients...

PURPOSE: Although most of the clinicians in breast cancer care seem to approve of shared decision making (SDM), actual implementation is limited. The aim of this study was to explore the experiences, issues and concerns of early-adopter professionals with regards to shared decision making. METHODS: This qualitative descriptive study was part of a pilot study aimed at implementing SDM in breast cancer teams. We interviewed 27 clinicians; 9 breast cancer surgeons, 11 nurse practitioners and 7 nurses...
