Objective null We conducted a prospective clinical trial of patients receiving radiation (RT) for brain metastases to identify clinical predictors of pre-RT and post-RT health-related quality of life (hrQoL). null Materials and methods null Patients with brain metastases completed overall (European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer QLQ C15-PAL) and brain tumor-specific (QLQ-BN20) hrQoL assessments pre-RT (n=127) and 1 (n=56) and 3 (n=45) months post-RT. Linear and proportional-od...

This is especially true for underserved BrCS whose unmet supportive care needs can result in worse physical and mental health outcomes. This qualitative study compared healthcare and support providers' perceptions of BrCS' needs to survivors' perceptions of their own needs. null Methods null Semi-stru...

OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to examine the factor structure and reliability of the multidimensional Reproductive Concerns After Cancer (RCAC) scale in a sample of female cancer survivors during their reproductive years, younger than age 45. METHODS: Female reproductive-aged survivors (N = 238; current age, 18 to 44 y) with a variety of cancer diagnoses completed a web-based survey that included the RCAC scale. Three structural models were examined via confirmatory factor analysis: (a)...
