The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) has conducted several member surveys that included questions about staffing but has not established nurse-patient ratios, given the number and complexity of variables that must be considered. The 2016 ONS member survey showed that staffing was the most frequently cited challenge in the practice setting. With the implementation of ONS Communities in 2017, members have the opportunity to network and connect about issues. Staffing in chemotherapy infusion centers has been a f...
Clinician surveys can be a useful resource to identify uncertainties in practice, determine expert or current opinion, define research priorities (as part of a priority setting partnership) and demonstrate feasibility of undertaking randomised clinical trials (RCT). Online survey programs such as SurveyMonkeyor Google surveys provide a simple step-by-step process to develop electronic surveys at little or no cost. These can be distributed using an email link to a nationwide audience via society membership g...
In response to the well-documented need for evidence-based cancer caregiver support, we examined the feasibility of problem-solving therapy for family caregivers of cancer patients receiving outpatient palliative care and investigated the impact of problem-solving therapy on family caregivers' anxiety, depression, and quality of life.
To understand how missing data may influence conclusions drawn from campus sexual assault surveys.
Surveys are a useful tool in primary care. However, low response rates can introduce selection bias, impairing both external and internal validity. The aim of this study was to assess the average response rate in surveys with Portuguese general practitioners (GPs).
Using convenient stratification criteria such as geographical regions or other natural conditions like age, gender, etc., is not beneficial in order to maximize the precision of the estimates of variables of interest. Thus, one has to look for an efficient stratification design to divide the whole population into homogeneous strata that achieves higher precision in the estimation. In this paper, a procedure for determining Optimum Stratum Boundaries (OSB) and Optimum Sample Sizes (OSS) for each stratum of a...
The crude death rate (CDR) is one of the defining indicators of humanitarian emergencies. When data from vital registration systems are not available, it is common practice to estimate the CDR from household surveys with cluster-sampling design. However, sample sizes are often too small to compare mortality estimates to emergency thresholds, at least in a frequentist framework. Several authors have proposed Bayesian methods for health surveys in humanitarian crises. Here, we develop an approach specifically...
The usability and acceptability of patient-centered mobile health tracking apps among most clinical populations are unknown. This mixed-methods feasibility study evaluated the usability and acceptability of the Health Storylines app among 32 adult radiation oncology patients in a 2-week trial. Data were collected via pre- and post-app use surveys and digital analytics. Participants accessed the app platform a total of 711 times. The overall usability of the Heath Storylines app was rated favorably, and 81% ...
A community hospital combined its medical and surgical patients with cancer on one unit, which resulted in nurses not trained in oncology caring for this patient population.
Findings from cross-sectional blindness prevalence surveys are at risk of several biases that cause the study estimate to differ from the 'true' population prevalence. For example, response bias occurs when people who participate ('responders') differ from those who do not ('non-responders') in ways that affect prevalence estimates. This study aimed to assess the extent to which response bias is considered and occurs in blindness prevalence surveys in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
Physical symptom burden and psychologic symptoms are highly prevalent in women with breast cancer. The Distress Thermometer and Problem List (DT&PL) is commonly used in oncology clinics to screen for distress and its accompanying Physical Problem List (PPL) identifies pertinent physical symptoms.
Targeted cancer therapies have revolutionized the treatment of cancer in the past decade, but cardiovascular toxicity is a rising problem in cancer patients. Here we discuss the effects of targeted cancer therapies on atherosclerosis. Increasing the awareness of these adverse effects will promote the development of evidence-based preventive strategies in the emerging field of cardiovascular oncology.
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.
Cancer-related cognitive impairment (CRCI) is an important clinical problem in patients with breast cancer receiving chemotherapy. Nationwide longitudinal studies are needed to understand the trajectory and severity of CRCI in specific cognitive domains.
Syphilis in pregnancy is an under-recognized public health problem, especially in sub-Saharan Africa which accounts for over 60% of the global burden of syphilis. If left untreated, more than half of maternal syphilis cases will result in adverse pregnancy outcomes including stillbirth and fetal loss, neonatal death, prematurity or low birth weight, and neonatal infections. Achieving universal coverage of antenatal syphilis screening and treatment has been the focus of the global campaign for the eliminatio...
To describe the US hematology and medical oncology practice landscape and to report findings of the sixth annual ASCO Oncology Practice Census survey.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has conducted two global surveys in 2011 and 2015 using the Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework (HHSAF). In 2011, 2119 health facilities from 69 countries participated; in 2015, 807 from 91 countries. A total of 86 facilities submitted results for both surveys; their overall score increased significantly (p
As many biosimilars come to market in the next several years, their use in oncology will play an important role in the future care of patients with cancer. ASCO is committed to providing education and guidance to the oncology community on the use of biosimilars in the cancer setting; therefore, ASCO has developed this statement to offer guidance in the following areas: (1) naming, labeling, and other regulatory considerations, (2) safety and efficacy of biosimilars, (3) interchangeability, switching, and su...
Corticosteroids are the mainstay of treatment for peritumor edema but are often associated with significant side effects. Therapies that can reduce corticosteroid use would potentially be of significant benefit to patients. However, currently there are no standardized endpoints evaluating corticosteroid use in neuro-oncology clinical trials.
