Therapeutic massage is the most common non-traditional treatment option offered to improve quality of life, provide comfort and decrease pain in hospice and palliative care settings outside the hospital. Three systematic reviews of data in general pain, surgical and cancer populations found massage to be effective for treating pain versus active comparators. Given the remarkable negative impact on QOL experienced by patients hospitalized with a serious progressive illness, a nationwide opioid crisis in the setting of public concern for untreated pain, and patient demand for integrative therapies, we wish to investigate non-traditional methods of supporting patients in pain and providing clinicians with viable alternatives. Unfortunately, very little is known about optimal delivery of massage interventions in the hospital setting, including dosing parameters such as time and frequency We conducted a single center comparative effectiveness study to evaluate therapeutic massage "dosing" to improve self-reported quality-of-life in hospitalized patients receiving palliative care consultation.
An article to present how cancer patients were taken in charge at Lyon University Hospital Cancer Institute (France) during the first peak of the COVID-19 pandemic between March and May 2020 is under writing. It will present strategies that were set-up to avoid cross-contamination between patients and caregivers, patients treatment adaptation (timing, dosage,..) and how consultations, multidisciplinary team meetings, surgical procedures and clinical trials were impacted. Part of this article will also illustrate the characteristics of patients with a solid tumor(s) that have been hospitalized during this timeframe for the COVID-19. How cancer type and stage affect Covid severity and mortality.will be described for a small sample of patients (44). These qualitative figures will be compared to literature current state of the art.
The incidence of anemia ranges from 20 to 75% depending on the type of cancer. It is often present at diagnosis and increases with specific treatments. It has an impact on overall survival and quality of life. Its origins are multiple (pure iron deficiency or functional, malnutrition, dyserythropoiesis, insufficiency renal, hemolysis, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, targeted therapies). Transfusion is the most common treatment offered in the management of anemia. The incidence of anemia and its consequences are often underestimated during cancer management. Recommendations were published in 2012. An inventory of the incidence of anemia before and after the publication of these recommendations are proposed in order to assess their impact on daily practice.
The aim of the study is to evaluate the effects and side effects of inactive COVID-19 vaccine in patients with cancer and compare them with the healthy control group.
