  • Staff's Experiences of Preparing and Caring for Children With Cancer and Their Families During the Child's Radiotherapy. [Journal Article]
  • CNCancer Nurs 2018 Aug 07
  • Ångström-Brännström C, Lindh V, … Engvall G
  • CONCLUSIONS: The preparatory intervention facilitated the ability of staff members to conduct their work, although the intervention should be specifically tailored to each child. Meeting children and their families and providing care to both during RT were challenging. The staff strived to provide optimal care for each child and family. Interdisciplinary teamwork and organizational acceptance for the importance of preparation and distraction were essential.A future challenge will be to provide opportunities for all staff involved in the treatment of children with cancer to develop their skills continuously in order to provide high-quality preparation and distraction to all children undergoing RT, regardless of the geographical location of the RT center.
  • What Do Breast Cancer Survivors Expect From Exercise? [Journal Article]
  • CNCancer Nurs 2018 Aug 07
  • Hirschey R, Pan W, … Lipkus I
  • CONCLUSIONS: Outcome expectations are generally important to breast cancer survivors. Thus, OEs may motivate increased exercise among this population.Oncology providers should encourage patients to think about OEs more often to increase exercise. Compared with traditional approaches of informing patients about exercise benefits, this may be a more comprehensive and powerful approach to motivate exercise among breast cancer survivors.
  • Trying to Feel Normal Again: Early Survivorship for Adolescent Cancer Survivors. [Journal Article]
  • CNCancer Nurs 2018 Jul 17
  • Walker AJ, Lewis FM, … Rosenberg AR
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study contributes to our understanding of survivors' relationships with parents, siblings, and friends and survivors' models of the illness. Future studies are needed to understand how parents can help adolescents assume greater responsibility for their care, to understand what it is like for friends to have a peer with cancer and what behaviors by healthcare providers contribute to feelings of abandonment later in survivorship, and to better understand adolescent survivors' models of the illness and survivorship.Study results suggest that nurses are in an ideal position to begin and to continue discussions with adolescent survivors about the adolescent's view of medical follow- up, its purpose and importance, and ways in which the adolescent can begin, early on, to engage in planning their own health during survivorship.
  • Trajectories of Fasting Blood Glucose in Autologous Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation. [Journal Article]
  • CNCancer Nurs 2018 Jul 17
  • Hammer MJ, Paul SM, … Miaskowski C
  • CONCLUSIONS: The large amount of interindividual variability in the trajectories of FBG levels following autologous HCT suggests that glucose control in these patients warrants ongoing assessments and preemptive tailoring.Fasting blood glucose monitoring is warranted. Additional research with larger samples is warranted to identify additional modifiable and nonmodifiable characteristics associated with interindividual variability in FBG levels.
