Background: Adult cancer survivors often experience substantial psychological morbidity following the completion of acute cancer treatment. Unfortunately, current psychological interventions are of limited efficacy. This study explored if metacognitive therapy (MCT); a brief transdiagnostic psychological intervention was potentially efficacious and could be delivered effectively to adult cancer survivors with psychological morbidity. Methods: An open trial with 3- and 6-month follow-up evaluated the treatment effects of MCT in 27 consecutively referred individuals to a clinical psychology health service specializing in psycho-oncology...

OBJECTIVE: In line with screening guidelines, cancer survivors were consecutively screened on depressive symptoms (as part of standard care), with those reporting elevated levels of symptoms offered psychological care as part of a trial. Due to the low uptake, no conclusions could be drawn about the interventions' efficacy. Given the trial set-up (following screening guidelines and strict methodological quality criteria), we believe that this observational study reporting the flow of participation, reasons for and characteristics associated with non-participation, adds to the debate about the feasibility and effiency of screening guidelines...

Psycho-oncology research in India reveals that family caregivers and oncologists are primary medical decision-makers frequently acting on behalf of the patient. Thus, patients are rarely asked about their wants and needs. This study aimed to understand Indian cancer patients' needs and expectations from their support network. Twenty-six cancer patients participated in semi-structured interviews exploring patients' needs, perceptions of their support network and the type of support they would prefer, and their experiences of receiving this support...

AIMS: The aim of this study was to provide guidance to improve the completeness and clarity of meta-ethnography reporting. BACKGROUND: Evidence-based policy and practice require robust evidence syntheses which can further understanding of people's experiences and associated social processes. Meta-ethnography is a rigorous seven-phase qualitative evidence synthesis methodology, developed by Noblit and Hare. Meta-ethnography is used widely in health research, but reporting is often poor quality and this discourages trust in and use of its findings...

OBJECTIVE: Thiamine deficiency (TD) is recognized in various kinds of disease with associated loss of appetite including cancer; however, TD has not been recognized in the family caregivers of cancer patients to date. METHOD: From a series of cancer patient caregivers, we reported an aged family caregiver who developed TD while caring for the cancer patient.ResultThe caregiver was a 90-year-old male. He had been accompanying his wife, who was diagnosed with colon cancer 4 years previously, on hospital visits as the primary caregiver, but because of psychological issues, he was recommended to visit the psycho-oncology department's "caregiver's clinic" for a consultation...

INTRODUCTION: Despite high distress the majority of head and neck cancer patients does not use any psycho-oncological counselling or psychotherapeutic support. Additionally, patients with head and neck cancer have an increased risk of not returning to work compared to other cancer patients. Therefore, we have developed a group intervention program which aims at improving work ability in patients with head and neck cancer as well as their quality of life, self-efficacy and psychological well-being...

BACKGROUND: Psycho-oncological care is a main component of comprehensive oncological care as stated in the National Cancer Plan of the German Federal Government. Correspondingly this goal has been adopted in the strategy of the German Skin Cancer Council. In certified skin cancer centers structural requirements for psycho-oncological care are established. Nevertheless, a large proportion of skin cancer patients are treated in dermatological practices. Up to now data on psycho-oncological care in dermatological practices are missing...

National and international guidelines and certification criteria for comprehensive cancer centres require the psycho-oncological co-treatment of distressed cancer patients. Of course, this also applies to the field of uro-oncology. The individual need for psychosocial support should be systematically evaluated by "distress screening" procedures. While in general about 30 % of all cancer patients are considered severely distressed, this rate seems to be lower (about 20 %) in prostate cancer patients, the largest uro-oncological entity...

BACKGROUND: As worldwide cancer prevalence continues to increase, the challenges facing cancer care are also increasing. Various topics related to deficiencies in cancer care have been discussed repeatedly in the literature. The most frequently stated topics are the unmet psychosocial support needs of cancer patients, difficulties in multidisciplinary teamwork, difficulties in communication between physicians and patients, and issues in palliative care settings. However, there is little research regarding the views of health care providers on these topics...

Friederike Kendel, Caren Hilger
Tumour diseases are accompanied by complex fears and psychological stress, with which the urologist is confronted. This article examines facets of doctor-patient interaction from a psycho-oncological perspective. These include risk perception, lay theories, lifestyle changes, sexuality and, most importantly, dealing with anxiety. Based on recent research results, suggestions are given for the communication with patients. However, the article also shows the limits of physician-patient conversations. Professional psychological patient support is required if the cancer causes a psychological crisis or if deeper problems are reactivated, or if some problems simply require more time and rest than is available in everyday practice...

Summary The first German interdisciplinary S3-guideline on the diagnosis, therapy and follow-up of patients with endometrial cancer was published in April 2018. Funded by German Cancer Aid as part of an Oncology Guidelines Program, the lead coordinators of the guideline were the German Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics (DGGG) and the Gynecological Oncology Working Group (AGO) of the German Cancer Society (DKG). Purpose Using evidence-based, risk-adapted therapy to treat low-risk women with endometrial cancer avoids unnecessarily radical surgery and non-useful adjuvant radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy...

PURPOSE: Identifying and assessing psychosocial distress with an appropriate screening instrument is essential when caring for cancer patients. Since 2012, the distress thermometer (DT) has been used by nurses for all cancer inpatients at the Comprehensive Cancer Center Zurich. We wanted to identify nurses' adherence to the screening protocol, differences between screened and not screened patients and the relationship between screening rate and productivity. METHODS: This retrospective descriptive study used screening and referral data as well as socioeconomic and disease-related data of inpatients at the Comprehensive Cancer Center Zurich...

OBJECTIVE: Clinical experience reveals a gap between recommended psychosocial care and actual support for psycho-oncology. Physicians' are essential for managing psychosocial distress and for the successful implementation of psycho-oncology. The aim was to explore physician's attitudes towards psycho-oncology, their self-perceived barriers towards referral to psycho-oncology, and their personal psychosocial competencies in a maximum-care hospital. METHOD: Semi-structured interviews informed the development of a questionnaire administered to a monocentric sample of 120 physicians at the University Hospital Frankfurt...

Youngmee Kim, Hannah-Rose Mitchell, Amanda Ting
BACKGROUND: Cancer affects both men and women, yet systematic understanding of the role of gender in caregiving and dyadic caregiver-patient interactions is lacking. Thus, it may be useful to review how gender theories apply to cancer caregiving and to evaluate the adequacy of current cancer caregiving studies to the gender theories. METHODS: Several databases, including MEDLINE (Ovid), PsychINFO, PubMed, and CINAHL, were used for searching articles published in English between 2000 and 2016...

OBJECTIVE: Highly distressed cancer patients often do not use psycho-oncological services (POS). Research on predictors of POS uptake has mainly focused on patient-related variables and less on communication variables, so we examined the link between patient-oncologist communication (i.e., talking about psychosocial distress, providing detailed information, and recommending POS) and POS uptake. METHODS: We conducted a prospective, observational study in an Oncology Outpatient Clinic in Switzerland...
