  • Symptoms and self-care strategies during and six months after radiotherapy for prostate cancer : Scoping the perspectives of patients, professionals and literature
  • 2016

    • <p><strong>Purpose</strong>: Under-diagnosed and uncontrolled symptoms in patients with prostate cancer during radiotherapy can have a negative impact on the individual's quality of life. An opportunity for patients to report their symptoms systematically, communicate these symptoms to cancer nurses and to receive self-care advice via an application in an Information and Communication Technology-platform could overcome this risk. The content in the application must precisely capture symptoms that are significant to both patients and health care professionals. Therefore, the aim of the study was to map and describe symptoms and self-care strategies identified by patients with prostate cancer undergoing radiotherapy, by health care professionals caring for these patients, and in the literature.</p><p><strong>Methods</strong>: The study combines data from interviews with patients (n ¼ 8) and health care professionals (n ¼ 10) and a scoping review of the literature (n ¼ 26) focusing on the period during and up to 6 months after radiotherapy.</p><p><strong>Results</strong>: There was a concordance between the patients, health care professionals, and the literature on symptoms during and after radiotherapy. Urinary symptoms, bowel problems, pain, sexual problems, fatigue, anxiety, depression, cognitive impairment and irregular symptoms were commonly described during the initial treatment period. Self-care strategies were rarely described in all three of the sources.</p><p><strong>Conclusions</strong>: The results show which symptoms to regularly assess using an Information and Communication Technology-platform for patients with newly-diagnosed prostate cancer during radiotherapy. The next step is to evaluate the efficacy of using the platform and the accuracy of the selected symptoms and self-care advice included in a smartphone application.</p>

  • Information needs of women with recently diagnosed ovarian cancer : a longitudinal study.
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Oncology Nursing. - 1462-3889 .- 1532-2122. ; 8:3, s. 200-207
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>The aim of this study was to investigate the information needs among patients with ovarian cancer and whether these information needs change over time. The information needs were evaluated three times, through structured interviews, and were based on the paired comparison approach developed by Degner and colleagues. A consecutive sample of patients (n = 82) with recently diagnosed ovarian cancer was asked to participate. Sixty-four patients (78%) chose to participate. The three different measurements of participants' information needs revealed only small changes in these needs. The three most important information needs, in all measurements, were information about the likelihood of cure, information about the stage and spreading of the disease, and information about different treatment options. Information regarding sexual attractiveness was the lowest ranked item in all measurements. Regarding subgroups (age, education) the only significant difference throughout all measurements was that younger patients rated issues of sexual attractiveness higher than older patients (p = 0.005). In this longitudinal study patients with ovarian cancer ranked information about the disease and its treatment (i.e. likelihood of cure, stage of disease, and treatment options) highest, and information about psychosocial aspects and self-care lowest. These findings are in accordance with the results from studies of women diagnosed with other types of cancer, which used the same methodology.</p> <p></p>

  • The course of Health Related Quality of Life in postmenopausal women with breast cancer from breast surgery and up to five years post-treatment.
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Breast (Edinburgh, Scotland). - 1532-3080. ; 22:5
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: Previous studies include too few patients over 70 years to be able to assess treatment effects on Health Related Quality Of Life (HRQOL) in the older age group. We aimed to follow HRQOL in postmenopausal women (55-80 years) with breast cancer receiving adjuvant treatment, until five years post-treatment, and compare with a general population. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The patient sample included 150 women (adjuvant CT n = 75 and RT n = 75) and two reference samples from the Swedish SF-36 norm database. RESULTS: Data from baseline showed significantly higher levels of physical functioning and general health among the patients compared to the reference sample, and significantly lower levels of bodily pain, emotional role functioning and mental health. Longitudinal analyses showed significant changes in all scales, and three different patterns (a decrease-stable, a decrease-increase, and a stable- increase pattern) were identified. CONCLUSION: Postmenopausal women seem to successfully manage the effects of adjuvant treatment on HRQOL.

  • The Swedish version of the Frommelt Attitude Toward Care of the Dying scale : aspects of validity and factors influencing nurses' and nursing students' attitudes.
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Cancer Nursing. - 0162-220X .- 1538-9804. ; 37:1, s. E1-11
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p><strong>BACKGROUND:</strong> Nurses' attitudes toward caring for dying persons need to be explored. The Frommelt Attitude Toward Care of the Dying (FATCOD) scale has not previously been used in Swedish language.</p><p><strong>OBJECTIVES:</strong> The objectives of this study were to compare FATCOD scores among Swedish nurses and nursing students with those from other languages, to explore the existence of 2 subscales, and to evaluate influences of experiences on attitudes toward care of dying patients.</p><p><strong>METHODS:</strong> A descriptive, cross-sectional, and predictive design was used. The FATCOD scores of Swedish nurses from hospice, oncology, surgery clinics, and palliative home care and nursing students were compared with published scores from the United States, Israel, and Japan. Descriptive statistics, t tests, and factor and regression analyses were used.</p><p><strong>RESULTS:</strong> The sample consisted of 213 persons: 71 registered nurses, 42 enrolled nurses, and 100 nursing students. Swedish FATCOD mean scores did not differ from published means from the United States and Israel, but were significantly more positive than Japanese means. In line with Japanese studies, factor analyses yielded a 2-factor solution. Total FATCOD and subscales had low Cronbach α's. Hospice and palliative team nurses were more positive than oncology and surgery nurses to care for dying patients.</p><p><strong>CONCLUSIONS:</strong> Although our results suggest that the Swedish FATCOD may comprise 2 distinct scales, the total scale may be the most adequate and applicable for use in Sweden. Professional experience was associated with nurses' attitudes toward caring for dying patients.</p><p><strong>IMPLICATION FOR PRACTICE:</strong> Care culture might influence nurses' attitudes toward caring for dying patients; the benefits of education need to be explored.</p>
