05 THE FEMALE PERSPECTIVE A CROSS SECTIONAL STUDY ON CANCER REHABILITATION NEEDS SOCIAL STIGMA AND QUALITY OF LIFE IN WOMEN WITH CANCER Book Review:

THE FEMALE PERSPECTIVE - A CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDY ON CANCER REHABILITATION NEEDS, SOCIAL STIGMA AND QUALITY OF LIFE IN WOMEN WITH CANCERJeanette Kittang1, Emma Ohlsson-Nevo21Faculty of Medicine and Health, u00d6rebro University, Department of Oncology, u00d6rebro University Hospital, u00d6rebro, Sweden.2 Faculty of Medicine and Health, u00d6rebro University, University Health Care Research Center, u00d6rebro, Sweden.BackgroundMore than 30.000 women in Sweden receive a cancer diagnosis every year and 11.000 of these women suffer from gynecological cancer or breast cancer. Early rehabilitation intervention is an effective way to support female cancer patients in improving their quality of life.Feminist theory states that society today has a male-centered definition of science because historically, knowledge has been based on the experience of privileged, white men and thereby excluding less privileged groups. MethodIn 2017, postal questionnaires were sent out to 521 women diagnosed with cancer. Main research variables were cancer rehabilitation needs based on types of cancer, age and education. Other variables were social stigma and health related quality of life.The aim of the study was to describe cancer rehabilitation needs, social stigma and quality of life in women with cancer in general and women with gynecological cancer and breast cancer in specific.ResultsThe final sample consists of 315 women, which gives a response rate of 60%. The most wanted cancer rehabilitation for the entire cohort was Information and supportive groups with people with the same diagnosis (39%), and the second most wanted was Individual weight training (33%). When the 16 listed rehabilitation needs were grouped into 10 groups, complexity showed that 30% of the women wanted no cancer rehabilitation intervention. 50% of the women wanted more than one rehabilitation intervention. 11% of the women wanted five different rehabilitation interventions. ConclusionThe result shows that there is a great need of cancer rehabilitation interventions among these women.It is notable how similar the groups are when based on type of cancer or age, this implies that a nurse needs to see the individual needs in every patient and not let the primary understanding be based on patient characteristics.

The Silver Lining Book Review:

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER As a healthy, happy thirty-nine-year-old mother with no family history of breast cancer, being diagnosed with the disease rocked Hollye Jacobs’s world. Having worked as a nurse, social worker, and child development specialist for fifteen years, she suddenly found herself in the position of moving into the hospital bed. She was trained as a clinician to heal. In her role as patient, the healing process became personal. Exquisitely illustrated with full-color photographs by Hollye’s close friend, award-winning photographer Elizabeth Messina, The Silver Lining is both Hollye’s memoir and a practical, supportive resource for anyone whose life has been touched by breast cancer. In the first section of each chapter, she describes with humor and wisdom her personal experience and gives details about her diagnosis, treatment, side effects, and recovery. The second section of each chapter is told from Hollye’s point of view as a medical expert. In addition to providing a glossary of important terms and resources, she addresses the physical and emotional aspects of treatment, highlights what patients can expect, and provides action steps, including: What to do when facing a diagnosis How to find the best and most supportive medical team What questions to ask What to expect at medical tests How to talk with and support children How to relieve or avoid side effects How to be a supportive friend or family member How to find Silver Linings Looking for and finding Silver Linings buoyed Hollye from the time of her diagnosis throughout her double mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, and recovery. They gave her the balance and perspective to get her through the worst days, and they compose the soul of the book. The Silver Lining of Hollye’s illness is that she can now use the knowledge gleaned from her experience to try to make it better for those who have to follow her down this difficult path. This is why she is sharing her story. Hollye is the experienced girlfriend who wants to help shed some light in the darkness, provide guidance through the confusion, and hold your hand every step of the way. At once comforting and instructive, realistic and inspiring, The Silver Lining is a visually beautiful, poignant must-read for everyone who has been touched by cancer.

Breast and Gynecological Cancers Book Review:

Low- and middle-income countries have seen a dramatic rise in the incidence of breast and gynecological cancers in the past decade. Organized cancer screening programs are not widely available in developing countries, leading to disproportionately higher mortality rates compared to those in the developed world. This book addresses cost-effective strategies for implementing programs aimed at screening for the early detection of breast, cervical, endometrial, and ovarian cancers. A well woman clinic concept providing such services as part of women’s health examinations is proposed, aiming to ensure patient compliance by limiting clinic visits required for initial testing and diagnosis of screen positive cases.

Exercise Oncology Book Review:

This groundbreaking book presents a unique and practical approach to the evolving field of exercise oncology - the study of physical activity in the context of cancer prevention and control. Presenting the current state of the art, the book is sensibly divided into four thematic sections. Following an opening chapter presenting an overview and timeline of exercise oncology, the chapters comprising part I discuss primary cancer prevention, physical activity and survivorship, and the mechanisms by which these operate. Diagnosis and treatment considerations are discussed in part II, including prehabilitation, exercise during surgical recovery, infusion and radiation therapies, and treatment efficacy. Post-treatment and end-of-life care are covered in part III, including cardio-oncology, energetics and palliative care. Part IV presents behavioral, logistical and policy-making considerations, highlighting a multidisciplinary approach to exercise oncology as well as practical matters such as reimbursement and economics. Written and edited by experts in the field, Exercise Oncology will be a go-to practical resource for sports medicine clinicians, family and primary care physicians, oncologists, physical therapy and rehabilitation specialists, and all medical professionals who treat cancer patients.

Etiology of Breast and Gynecological Cancers Book Review:

Progress in Clinical and Biological Research, Volume 396 Etiology of Breast and Gynecological Cancers Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Carcinogenesis and Risk Assessment, Held in Austin, Texas, November 29–December 2, 1995 C. Marcelo Aldaz, Michael N. Gould, John McLachlan, and Thomas J. Slaga, Editors Accounting for 150 cancers per 100,000 people at risk, breast cancer and gynecological cancer together constitute a major public health concern. These cancers have a common target population, and many also have common etiological features, including hormonal factors, genetic changes in genes such as BRCA1, and environmental factors such as ionizing radiation, viruses, chemical xenobiotics, diet, and nutrition. Etiology of Breast and Gynecological Cancers explores important environmental and genetic factors that are key to the induction of these cancers. The book takes a broad perspective, with chapters contributed by laboratory investigators and clinicians, as well as by epidemiologists. It emphasizes validation and issues of extrapolation from animal models to humans and their impact on risk assessment, and it also discusses intervention strategies in terms of chemoprevention, which has the potential to reduce the morbidity and mortality from these cancers in women. Etiology of Breast and Gynecological Cancers explores a wide variety of topics, including: recent advances in the molecular genetics of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer molecular perspectives on cancer, the cell cycle, and the inherited disorder ataxia-telangiectasia genotoxicity of environmental agents in human mammary epithelial cells rodent model of reproductive tract leiomyomata estrogens and the genetic control of tumor growth Featuring 19 outstanding presentations from leading researchers in an array of disciplines, Etiology of Breast and Gynecological Cancers is an important resource for investigators and clinicians in oncology, epidemiology, and public health, providing new understanding of the sources of these disorders as well as new directions for treatment and prevention.
