BACKGROUND There is a need to review factors related to health service utilisation by the increasing number of cancer survivors in order to inform care planning and the organisation and delivery of services. METHODS Studies were identified via systematic searches of Medline, PsycINFO, CINAHL, Social Science Citation Index and the SEER-MEDICARE library.(More)
Understanding the experience of late effects from the perspective of cancer survivors is essential to inform patient-centred care. This study investigated the nature and onset of late effects experienced by survivors and the manner in which late effects have affected their lives. Sixteen purposively selected cancer survivors participated in a qualitative(More)
OBJECTIVE Cancer survivors (CSs) are at risk of developing late effects (LEs) associated with the disease and its treatment. This paper compares the health status, care needs and use of health services by CSs with LEs and CSs without LEs. METHODS Cancer survivors (n = 613) were identified via the Northern Ireland Cancer Registry and invited to participate(More)
BACKGROUND The population of people surviving cancer is continually increasing and currently cancer survivors represent approximately 3.7% of the American population and 3% of the UK population. There is limited and inconclusive empirical evidence regarding the long-term health and well-being of cancer survivors. METHODS Two hundred eighty-nine cancer(More)
This paper aims to synthesize literature about the definition, prevalence, onset and treatments associated with late effects. A rapid review was conducted using Google Scholar to identify reviews related to the late effects of adult-onset cancers. Papers were included if they provided a definition of late effects and/or presented a review of late effects as(More)
PURPOSE A systematic review of the validity, reliability and sensitivity of the Short Form (SF) health survey measures among breast cancer survivors. METHODS We searched a number of databases for peer-reviewed papers. The methodological quality of the papers was assessed using the COnsenus-based Standards for the selection of health Measurement(More)
BACKGROUND It is estimated that up to 75% of cancer survivors may experience cognitive impairment as a result of cancer treatment and given the increasing size of the cancer survivor population, the number of affected people is set to rise considerably in coming years. There is a need, therefore, to identify effective, non-pharmacological interventions for(More)
To assess fetal response to vibratory acoustic stimulation, 24 preterm (group A; less than 36 weeks' gestation) and 30 term (group B; greater than or equal to 36 weeks' gestation) pregnancies were studied. Study variables were perceived fetal movement, fetal heart rate, and fetal heart rate pattern. Observer- and patient-perceived fetal movement responses(More)
Links between participating in unhealthy behaviours, e.g. smoking, and an increased risk of developing some cancers are well established. Unemployed adults are more likely to participate in cancer-related health behaviours than their employed counterparts. However, evidence of whether this is true in young adults not in education, employment or training(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify the reasons why some people do not participate in bowel cancer screening so that steps can be taken to improve informed decision-making. DESIGN Qualitative study, using focus groups with thematic analysis of data to identify, analyse and report patterns. Transcripts were repeatedly read and inductively coded using a phenomenological(More)
