RESUMO

ABSTRACT Objective: To evaluate the association between sociodemographic, clinical, and treatment factors in the outcome of severe radiodermatitis in patients with head and neck cancer seen at the nursing consultation; and to analyze the impact of severe radiodermatitis cases on therapeutic follow-up. Method: A quantitative, documentary research conducted with medical records of 167 patients with head and neck cancer submitted to radiotherapy with curative indication followed in the nursing consultation in 2016. A structured form was used for data collection and analytical and descriptive statistics were used for its analysis. Results: Of the 99.4% patients who had radiodermatitis, 11.4% were severe cases. Severe radiodermatitis was associated with the type of equipment, treatment technique and presence of comorbidities. Of the patients who presented grade three, 53% had temporary discontinuation of treatment. Conclusion: Head and neck cancer patients who undergo radiotherapy with curative indication are at risk for severe radiodermatitis. Nursing consultation is important to minimize the severity of this event and the reduction of temporary treatment interruption due to this adverse reaction.

RESUMO

Infusion of antineoplastic medications in nontraditional settings, including the home, is not a new concept. However, the emergence of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has accelerated conversations around ensuring that patients with cancer can continue timely cancer treatment regimens while minimizing their risk of COVID-19 exposure and infection. Administration of antineoplastics through home infusion has been offered as a potential solution and continues to gain momentum among healthcare facilities and third-party payers.

RESUMO

Over 40 patients benefited from remote iconographic follow-up of wounds in an oncology centre. This system is piloted by three expert nurses. They carry out an initial analysis of the photographs received, seek medical expertise if necessary and liaise with the city's professionals. This system makes it possible to expertly accompany professionals and patients while avoiding unnecessary travel. The satisfaction survey conducted in 2018 established full satisfaction of patients and professionals (> 95%) and a guarantee in terms of the safety and quality of care of the wounds.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: During the COVID-19 outbreak, healthcare professionals (HCP) are at the frontline of clinical management and at increased risk for infection. The SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence of oncological HCP and their patients has significant implications for oncological care. METHODS: HCP and patients with cancer at the Division of Oncology, Medical University of Vienna were included between 21 March and 4 June and tested for total antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 employing the Roche Elecsys Anti-SARS-CoV-2 immunoassay. Reactive samples were confirmed or disproved by the Abbott SARS-CoV-2 IgG test. Additionally, a structured questionnaire regarding basic demographic parameters, travel history and COVID-19-associated symptoms had to be completed by HCP. RESULTS: 146 subjects (62 HCP and 84 patients with cancer) were enrolled. In the oncological HCP cohort, 20 (32.3%) subjects were medical oncologists, 28 (45.2%) nurses at our ward and 14 (22.6%) fulfil other functions such as study coordinators. In the patient cohort, most individuals are on active anticancer treatment (96.4%). 26% of the HCP and 6% of the patients had symptoms potentially associated with COVID-19 since the end of February 2020. However, only in 2 (3.2%) HCP and in 3 (3.6%) patients, anti-SARS-Cov-2 total antibodies were detected. The second assay for anti-SARS-Cov-2 IgG antibodies confirmed the positive result in all HCP and in 2 (2.4%) patients, suggesting an initial assay's unspecific reaction in one case. In individuals with a confirmed test result, an active COVID-19 infection was documented by a positive SARS-CoV-2 RNA PCR test. CONCLUSION: Specific anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies were found solely in persons after a documented SARS-CoV-2 viral infection, thus supporting the test methods' high sensitivity and specificity. The low prevalence of anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in our cohorts indicates a lack of immunity against SARS-CoV-2. It highlights the need for continued strict safety measures to prevent uncontrolled viral spread among oncological HCPs and patients with cancer.

RESUMO

As an oncology advanced practice nurse, I find myself asking, "How can I continue to provide the same level of competent, quality care while meeting the unique, holistic needs of this population leveraged with self-care during the COVID-19 pandemic?" In talking with colleagues, we find ourselves torn between providing fluid oncology care that is compassionate and comprehensive while managing our uncertainties with our family since the beginning of this pandemic. I practice in a state that is known nationally to have the worst rates of cancer-associated deaths and comorbidities, which predisposes patients to poor outcomes with COVID-19 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2020). Providers grasp that patients are at higher risk, yet patients with active cancer must be seen in person regularly and providers are tasked with how to protect them.

RESUMO

Put aside the exasperating debate about whether individuals should wear a face mask to protect themselves and others against the spread of the COVID-19 virus (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2020). Wearing a face mask has become a cause célèbre, with implications of safety for oneself and others, trust in science, and being in defiance of or in lockstep with healthcare authority figures.

RESUMO

To plan for a proactive approach to support patients traveling for their treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic, a network of oncology hospitals worked within existing collaborative agreements to define policies and procedures to transition care for patients living in communities in close proximity to a member institution. Nurse leaders were instrumental in collaborating with and leading interprofessional partners to achieve these outcomes. These efforts led to patients' abilities to continue treatment in their local community, ensuring continuity of cancer care.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: After coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was declared a pandemic by the WHO, a response from the Italian Health System to react to an unprecedented condition became necessary and sudden. The COVID-19 pandemic has required oncologists to redefine clinical organization and patient management. The purpose of our study was to document the difficulties emerging during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in Italian oncology. METHODS: We broadcasted an electronic survey to oncologic health care professionals. It consisted of 45 questions ranging from individual perception of pandemic management by hospital centers to physicians' and nurses' psychological distress and patient care. RESULTS: A total of 383 oncology health workers participated in the survey. The majority were female (71.8%) and from central Italy (46.2%). Impressively, a total of 357 (93%) participants declared the oncologic department reorganized routine clinical activity, but only 40.5% were adequately trained about the required procedures; 20% of the survey respondents think they have not received adequate and timely protective devices. CONCLUSION: Our survey demonstrated the flexibility of oncologic teams. However, the emergency response quality has been heterogeneous, and several drawbacks have emerged from the first analyses investigating how the world of oncology changes in the COVID-19 pandemic. Information, protection, testing, and training of health care professionals are key words that should be kept in mind to encourage recovery after this tragedy and to be ready to face a similar emergency in the future.

RESUMO

The COVID-19 crisis continues. Worldwide, there have been roughly 6.3 million cases and 380,000 deaths. In the United States, at the time of this writing, there were 106,200 deaths. As life has changed on many fronts, some predictable effects of the pandemic have occurred, including socioeconomic hardships, social isolation, and political unease. Although the intensity of the need for effective treatments and a vaccine is ongoing, other issues have arisen that were not widely anticipated in the early days of the pandemic. Several of these consequences have brought a focus on issues that are at the heart of oncology nursing.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: to develop a Navigation Program for cancer patients, based on the model proposed by The GW Cancer Institute at George Washington University, adapted to the reality of a Brazilian High Complexity Center in Oncology. METHOD: a convergent care research applied in the development of a patient navigation care process, based on the model proposed by George Washington University, adapted for a High Complexity Center in Oncology in Brazil. Phases of the Convergent Assistance Research: conception, instrumentation, scrutiny, analysis and interpretation. These were correlated with the stages of the Program Development Cycle. Scale designed to categorize patients into navigation levels, validated by the Delphi Technique, with 12 specialists. RESULTS: in the diagnosis, patients with head and neck cancer were defined for inclusion in the Navigation Program. Planning and implementation took place simultaneously, allowing the basic formatting of the program and its processes to be designed. Navigation Needs Assessment Scale designed to select the patient to join the Program and determine the recommended support. The scale validation had a consensus index of 96.42%. Evaluation of the stages of the cycle occurred through the adapted Plan/Do/Check/Act cycle. CONCLUSION: a Navigation Program was developed adapted to the Brazilian reality, and attributions of the navigators were created.

RESUMO

COVID-19 pandemic strongly modified the organizations of our clinical practice. Strict containment measures have been adopted to limit the disease diffusion. In particular, hospital face-to-face post discharge and follow up visits have been reduced. Although cancelling or deferring appointments seems to be a pragmatic approach, this solution may have a devasting long-term impact on health medical care and on patients. In this context, telemedicine and remote consultations may have the potential to provide healthcare minimizing virus exposure. In this paper we describe how Multidisciplinary team (MDT) reorganized genitourinary cancer care delivery at our Institute (AO SS Antonio e Biagio e Cesare Arrigo, Alessandria), taking advantage of telematic means. Furthermore, we present our preliminary results regarding patients' satisfaction.

RESUMO

Pesquisa realizada com 208 pacientes oncológicos, entre maio de 2016 e janeiro de 2018, identificou associações estatisticamente significativas do Inventário de Depressão de Beck, instrumento utilizado para apreciar a presença de depressão, com as variáveis: realização de cirurgia, tempo de início da quimioterapia (em meses) e efeitos colaterais da quimioterapia. A partir desse instrumento foi identificado que a média dos escores indicou que a maioria dessas pessoas (71,2%) estavam sem depressão. Já 17,3% apresentavam depressão e 11,5% disforia. Entre as pessoas com depressão, as mulheres apresentavam o dobro dos casos. Esses dados foram resultantes de uma pesquisa realizada em um hospital de ensino do Estado de Minas Gerais, Brasil. Os pesquisadores empregaram o estudo exploratório com pacientes em quimioterapia, utilizando questionário para caracterização geral dos participantes e Inventário de Depressão de Beck e publicaram o artigo intitulado “Fatores associados à depressão em pacientes oncológicos durante quimioterapia, no periódico Rev Rene (v. 20).

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: To provide a critical reflection of COVID-19 in the context of oncology nursing and provide recommendations for caring for people affected by cancer during this pandemic. DATA SOURCES: Electronic databases, including CINAHL, MEDLINE, PsychINFO, Scopus, professional web sites, and grey literature were searched using Google Scholar. CONCLUSION: Nurses are key stakeholders in developing and implementing policies regarding standards of care during the COVID-19 pandemic. This pandemic poses several challenges for oncology services. Oncology nurses are providing a pivotal role in the care and management of the novel COVID-19 in the year landmarked as the International Year of the Nurse. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE: It is too early to tell what shape this pandemic will take and its impact on oncology care. However, several important clinical considerations have been discussed to inform oncology nursing care and practice.

RESUMO

Nowadays, cancer constitutes the second leading cause of death globally. The application of an efficient classification model is considered essential in modern diagnostic medicine in order to assist experts and physicians to make more accurate and early predictions and reduce the rate of mortality. Machine learning techniques are being broadly utilized for the development of intelligent computational systems, exploiting the recent advances in digital technologies and the significant storage capabilities of electronic media. Ensemble learning algorithms and semi-supervised algorithms have been independently developed to build efficient and robust classification models from different perspectives. The former attempts to achieve strong generalization by using multiple learners, while the latter attempts to achieve strong generalization by exploiting unlabeled data. In this work, we propose an improved semi-supervised self-labeled algorithm for cancer prediction, based on ensemble methodologies. Our preliminary numerical experiments illustrate the efficacy and efficiency of the proposed algorithm, proving that reliable and robust prediction models could be developed by the adaptation of ensemble techniques in the semi-supervised learning framework.

RESUMO

When I first started this editorial in early March, I was writing from my usual coffee shop location, and the media was starting to focus on COVID-19. The incidence of the virus was increasing across the world, and the word "pandemic"-although debated passionately at the time-was beginning to gain traction. All signs pointed to a disruption; however, the scale of that change has exceeded what most of us could have imagined in early March. Now, millions of Americans and people around the world are in self-isolation, quarantine, or lockdown. There have been roughly 1.4 million cases of COVID-19 and more than 83,000 deaths worldwide at the time of this writing (Johns Hopkins University and Medicine, 2020). Like most, with the exception of essential personnel, I am at home wondering what is going to happen next and trying to find any positive outcome to this crisis.
