Previous studies have found that overestimating treatment effects (i.e. 'optimism bias') leads to underpowered clinical trials. The prevalence of 'optimism bias' in contemporary National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) cancer clinical trials is unknown.
Precision radiation oncology necessitates the systematic curation of clinically relevant heterogeneity at the patient, disease state and treatment level, in turn, relating these measures to the longitudinal health outcomes of the irradiated cancer patient to gain personalized prediction and therapeutic insights. Leveraging the database and imaging platforms intrinsic to characterizing the heterogeneity of radiation therapy to develop an effective informatics infrastructure amongst a network of institutions ...
The qualitative description of tumors feeling stiffer than surrounding normal tissue has been long appreciated in the clinical setting. These empirical observations have been corroborated by the precise measurement and characterization of mechanical properties of cancerous tissues. Much of the advancement in our understanding of mechanics in oncology has been enabled by the development of innovative technologies designed to probe cells and tissues as well as integrative software analysis tools that facilita...
Onco, the Regional oncology network of Northern France, in partnership with Cronor, is piloting a project to harmonize radiotherapy practice. In 2016, a working party "Quality in Radiotherapy" was set up to encourage all centres in the network to participate in regional experience feedback committees. These committee meetings allow for analysis and handling of adverse events in radiotherapy within predefined areas of expertise. The purpose is to formalize and issue recommendations based on good practice by ...
Many US academic centers have acquired community practices to expand their clinical care and research footprint. The objective of this assessment was to determine whether the acquisition and integration of community oncology practices by Yale/Smilow Cancer Hospital improved outcomes in quality of care, disease team integration, clinical trial accrual, and patient satisfaction at network practice sites.
Network-based interventions against epidemic spread are most powerful when the full network structure is known. However, in practice, resource constraints require decisions to be made based on partial network information. We investigated how the accuracy of network data available at individual and village levels affected network-based vaccination effectiveness.
Defunctioning stoma (DS) and transanal tube (TT) placement have all been reported to be effective procedures to prevent anastomotic leakage after anterior resection. However, there are few studies that directly compare the 2 procedures, and those that do are unclear.
Nigeria has the largest population in Africa and has sub-optimal access to neuro-oncology care. It has been estimated that there is approximately 1 neurosurgeon to 2.4 million people in the country, with only few of these trained in the neuro-oncology sub-specialty and no dedicated medical or radiation neurooncologists. There is a paucity of information on the field of neuro-oncology in Nigeria. This manuscript aims to provide an overview of the current state of neuro-oncology literature in Nigeria.

The aim of this study was to investigate the post-sauna residual consequences on brain neural network arousal, information processing and cognitive performance.
Performance-based payments to oncology providers participating in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Oncology Care Model (OCM) are based, in part, on overall spending in 6-month episodes of care, including spending unrelated to oncology care. The amount of spending likely to occur outside of oncologists' purview is unknown.
High-quality data support multiple clinical benefits of integrating palliative care into routine oncology care. Though these data come largely from the medical oncology literature, data from surgical oncology populations support similar associations between palliative care integration and improved clinical outcomes, all without compromise in survival. This paper will review data supporting palliative care integration into oncology care, with a focus on surgical populations and recommendations for incorporat...
To measure burnout rates and resiliency scores in Canadian Oncology residents and to advance the knowledge regarding resiliency and wellness training in Canadian Oncology residency programs.
Oncology providers are often confronted by patients who use complementary or alternative therapies, but have limited knowledge or confidence on how to advise patients on appropriate use. Despite this, there are few opportunities for oncology providers to learn about complementary or alternative therapies, while at the same time there is a high demand for integrative oncology (IO) training. To address a gap in IO educational opportunities, and particularly for nonphysicians, we created the Integrative Oncolo...
To provide an overview of the literature review process and current information resources relevant to oncology nursing topics.
While the global workforce is approaching gender parity, women occupy a small number of management level positions across most professions, including healthcare. Although the inclusion of women into the membership of many oncology societies has increased, the under-representation of women in leadership roles within international and national oncology societies remains relatively consistent. Moreover, the exact status of women participating as board members or presidents of oncology societies or as speakers ...
Since there is sound evidence that communication skills training (CST) programs modify communication behavior of oncology clinicians, they have been widely implemented over the last decades. However, more recently, certain aspects of this training have been criticized.
Clinical experience reveals a gap between recommended psychosocial care and actual support for psycho-oncology. Physicians' are essential for managing psychosocial distress and for the successful implementation of psycho-oncology. The aim was to explore physician's attitudes towards psycho-oncology, their self-perceived barriers towards referral to psycho-oncology, and their personal psychosocial competencies in a maximum-care hospital.
Meaningful connections are an important aspect of career satisfaction. The Hematology Oncology Women Physician Group (HOWPG) is a private Facebook (FB) group of 936 women who practice within the hematology/oncology (H/O) field. We hypothesized that HOWPG adds value to education, emotional wellness, and practice of oncology for its membership. A survey was conducted within HOWPG to define group impact on members.
We conducted a randomized phase III trial to determine whether adjuvant chemotherapy improves survival in women with uterine leiomyosarcoma.
Lenalidomide in Combination with Intravenous Rituximab (REVRI) in Relapsed/Refractory Primary CNS Lymphoma or Primary Intraocular Lymphoma: a Multicenter Prospective "Proof of Concept" Phase II Study of the French Oculo-Cerebral Lymphoma (LOC) Network and the Lymphoma Study Association (LYSA).
Primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSLs) are mainly diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCLs) of the non-germinal center B-cell (non-GCB) subtype. This study aimed to determine the efficacy of rituximab plus lenalidomide (R2) in DLBCL-PCNSL.
