Individuals diagnosed with cancer tend to be inactive and have symptom burdens that impact quality of life. A community-based Nordic Pole Walking (NPW) program may help. The primary objective of this study was to see if it was feasible to do to a larger trial. The secondary objective was to determine the effects of NPW on physical function and health-related quality of life (HRQoL). NPW or no NPW was randomly assigned to adults with non-small cell lung, prostate, colorectal, and endometrial. Eight people were enrolled in the study with 4 in the NPW group (1 dropped out) and 4 in the no NPW group.
Introduction: Exercise programs focused on moderate intensity continuous training (MICT) and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) are shown as an effective treatment to mitigate the effects of cancer. Objective: To determine and compare the effects of MICT vs. HIIT on the cardiometabolic and psychosocial variables of the cancer patient. Methods and materials: Randomized controlled trial of 3 years and 4 months in participants with stage II cancer divided into 3 groups (MICT, HIIT and control group). Risk factors, blood samples for glycemia and lipid profile were identified. In addition, 6-minute walk, stress test for maximum heart rate (HRM), anthropometry, quality of life, fatigue, sarcopenia, depression, anxiety, clinical and hemodynamic parameters. All tests were done before and after 36 training sessions of 70 minutes, 3 times a week.
The purpose of the study was to analyze the psychological and emotional determinants of domestic dissemination of information about genetic risk of cancer and to compare the level of diffusion syndromes in breast/ ovarian cancer ( BRCA1 / BRCA2) and colon/endometrial ( HNPCC )
Older cancer patients referred to Oncology outpatient Clinic at Aarhus University Hospital have for a period been offered Comprehensive geriatric Assessment (CGA) as part of a routine practice. Oncology Department was responsible for planning the CGA. A number of patients did however not recieve this offer as planning failed. This Group of patients will be compared to patients recieving Geriatric assessment. Patients recieving CGA is part of a Randomised controlled study (ID: NCT02837679) comparing CGA without 90 days follow-up to CGA with 90 days of Comprehensive geriatric care. Patients are identified from electronic medical files. Data regarding death is obtained from Medical files.
Cancer and cancer treatments are accompanied by several possible side effects, such as nausea, hot flashes, fatigue, drowsiness, etc. Complementary and integrative therapies, such as acupuncture, could be used to manage these symptoms. The aim of this study for our research team is to have an idea of the interest of cancer patients and caregivers in acupuncture. This is a prospective, interventional study. Cancer patients and caregivers will be approached at the day care clinic by a health care worker to participate in this study. They will be asked to complete a questionnaire about their interest in acupuncture and their motivation, what symptoms they would need it for, where they would like this acupuncture to take place, whether they are willing to pay for it, and whether they would be interested in an information session about acupuncture.
Background: To face cancer-related stress, patients and caregivers activate individual and dyadic coping responses. Opened communication, adequate involvement, reciprocal supportive roles, self-disclosure and responsiveness enhance dyadic coping. Nevertheless, little is known about the optimal content of dyadic interventions designed to improve dyadic communication. Methods: A randomized controlled trail was designed to assess the efficacy of a dyadic intervention centered on a cancer-related communication reinforcement. Patient-caregiver dyads are randomly assigned to either an intervention group or a waiting list group. Patients and caregivers complete self-reported scales that assessed emotional distress, individual coping, cancer-related dyadic communication frequency, satisfaction, self-efficacy and coping at baseline and post-treatment (intervention group), or 6 weeks after baseline (waiting list group). This dyadic communication reinforcement intervention (DCRI) consists of a weekly 4-session intervention. This intervention includes specific communication tasks aiming the improvement of some cancer-related dyadic communication competencies such as concerns disclosure and request for support. Discussion: DCRI would lead to improvements in cancer-related dyadic communication self-efficacy, cancer-related dyadic communication satisfaction and dyadic coping.
Cancer patients and their caregivers often experience difficulties in coping with the cancer diagnosis and the treatment that follows. Creative art therapy could support cancer patients and their caregivers in coping with these issues by using their creativity and self-expression. The aim of this study for the investigator's research team is to create a clear image of what cancer patients and their caregivers expect of supportive care to help them coping with cancer diagnosis, cancer therapy and life after cancer. This is a prospective, interventional study. Cancer patients and their caregivers will be approached to participate in this study. They will be asked to complete a questionnaire about their satisfaction with the current support they get to help them coping with cancer diagnosis, cancer therapy and life after cancer and whether they would like to participate in an art therapy program, which art therapy forms they would like to participate in, how they would like them to be organized, etc.
The growing incidence of cancer associated to an aging population represents an epidemiologic reality that requires questioning access to care and prognosis in elderly with cancer, for which disparities have been highlighted. However, generally speaking, studies are limited in that they overlook geriatric-specific factors. The aim of this work was to study sociodemographic, socioeconomic and clinical determinants of access to care (cancer stage, cancer treatment) and prognosis (functional decline, survival) in elderly cancer patients.
Overview of response rate published in recent oncology phase I trials
The effectiveness of the analgesic and anti-nausea prevention techniques of the investigators justifies being evaluated regularly in order to adapt the management strategy to the specificities of each surgical act. A first evaluation took place in June 2016 and allowed to identify a category of patients (partial breast surgery with or without axillary gesture) not benefiting from an ideal algological management because justifying in 30% of the cases of a level 3 analgesic remedy in the postoperative recovery room. This use of morphine results in a significant incidence of postoperative nausea and prolonged recovery time before return home harmful to the patient. With their experience in locoregional anesthesia technique in complete breast surgery (total mastectomy) and aware of the effectiveness of this type of anesthesia on the management of immediate and chronic pain, the investigators have extended their indications of ALR to partial breast surgery in ambulatory.
