Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a highly prevalent chronic disease worldwide and is associated with a significant burden on both patients and society [1, 2].The natural course of COPD is interrupted by exacerbations, defined as ‘a sustained worsening of patients’ respiratory symptoms, which are beyond normal day-to-day variability and may warrant .   The study was conducted with consecutive patients who were visiting the unit for their treatment. All of the patients who passed through were given the questionnaires without making any discrimination according to their cancer types, however only the patients from the oncology department were included to avoid any inter-departmental conflict.

  The relationship between nurses’ job satisfaction and their perceptions of quality of care has been examined in previous studies. There is little evidence, however, about relationships between the job satisfaction of nursing staff and quality of care perceived by the patients. The aim of this study was to analyze, how the job satisfaction of nursing staff, .   The patient cohort with Advanced Chronic Respiratory Disease in the SUPPORT study showed how patients with worse self-perception of their state of health survived less. Subsequently, other works have shown how ratings obtained by questionnaires on health-related quality of life, both general and specific, are correlated with survival [ 16, 17 ].

  In Iowa, a study showed that having oncology specialists travel to rural site clinics for a certain number of days per week or month lowered the median driving time for patients to the closest medical oncology clinic from 52 to 19 minutes and increased the rate of chemotherapy administration among patients with invasive cancers residing in. BACKGROUND AND METHODS: The descriptive, correlational study examined patients' perceptions of pulmonary problems and nursing interventions in a sample (n = ) of persons living with AIDS hospitalized for Pneumocystis carinii.

The study site was an oncology unit comprised of two 32–36 bed oncology wards in a hospital. Participant recruitment was completed through convenient, purposive sampling and a snowballing technique.

Upon recruitment, information sheets were handed out with a verbal explanation of the by: Eligible patients with an MDT IPF diagnosis were approached by their clinicians to participate. They were given verbal information, an introductory letter and an information sheet and appropriate time (as per GCP guidance) to consider if they wanted to enter the study.

Seventeen patient interviews were conducted (seven males, 10 females).Cited by: The patients were given information about the study from information posters in the clinics, from the receptionist, and from their therapist.

We excluded patients under 16 years of age, patients attending their first consultation, patients that had been admitted for less than 24 hours, and patients that did not speak or read the Norwegian language.

The content of the information is defined in the Helsinki Declaration. Information given in an oncological department was investigated and the patients were interviewed about the information obtained. However, patients queried in our uro-oncology unit are currently more anxious about their metastatic disease than about the worldwide pandemic.

The results contradict the assumption that COVID may represent a dread risk, but there is still paucity of data about the perception of fear of SARS-CoV-2 in cancer by: 3.

The patients’ perception of received information regarding treatment and care was measured by EORTC QLQ-INFO25 (Arraras et al., ). This instrument has been used extensively and consists of the following 4 multi-item scales; information about the disease (4 items), medical tests (3 items), information about treatment (6 items), other.

A fear of side effects was main reasons given for delay in seeking treatment; however, perceptions were reported to change after receiving treatment when effective management to reduce the risk of side effects had been experienced.

This study provides basic information about cancer patients' perceptions towards cancer and its treatment. Background. Pediatric patients experience significant symptoms during cancer treatment.

Symptom management is frequently inadequate. We studied perceptions of pediatric oncology care providers regarding early integration of palliative care (PC) for pediatric patients to identify barriers and facilitators that might assist in understanding how care could be improved.

Objective To evaluate if observed increased weekend mortality was associated with poorer quality of care for patients admitted to hospital with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbation. Design Prospective case ascertainment cohort study.

Setting acute hospitals in England and Wales, UK. Participants Consecutive COPD admissions, excluding. Objectives Cancer's insidious onset and potentially devastating outcomes have made it one of the most feared diseases of the 20th century.

However, advances in early diagnosis and treatment mean that death rates are declining, and there are more than 30 million cancer survivors worldwide. This might be expected to result in more sanguine attitudes to the disease. Background Patients' perceptions and preferences influence the choice of radioiodine ablation (RIA) or surgery in the definitive management of Graves' disease.

This study aimed to evaluate their concerns, experiences and satisfaction following definitive treatment. Methods A postal survey of patients who had treatment with surgery or RIA between January and June. Patients were included if they had a Charlson/Deyo comorbidity score of 2 or 3, and those with a comorbidity score of 0 or 1 were excluded.

The Charlson/Deyo score is a weighted score derived from the sum of scores for comorbid conditions. For example, a score of 2 could include a patient with chronic pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure.

Pulmonary Medicine. In contrast to the prevailing perception, the subspecialty of oncology is incredibly gratifying. The relationships that you develop with patients and their families are.

PURPOSE Misconceptions associated with radiotherapy (RT) may affect the patient’s choice to undergo or not undergo RT. In this study, the level of awareness and perceptions about radiation and RT, as well as their impact on the use of RT, were assessed. MATERIALS AND METHODS A cross-sectional survey was conducted in the city of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Purpose Black patients report lower trust in physicians than white patients, but this difference is poorly studied. We examined whether racial differences in patient trust are associated with physician-patient communication about lung cancer treatment.

Patients and Methods Data were obtained for patients (22% black and 78% white) visiting thoracic surgery or oncology. Little is known with regard to perceptions and information needs of oncology practitioners in the Middle East as they pertain to smoking cessation (SC) support for cancer patients.

Although the present study found that in general patients felt they were given appropriate amounts of information, and reported a reasonable level of understanding of that information, this is not, of course, synonymous with a finding that patients are in fact capable of assimilating the information they are given.

Patients' perceptions are one. In this age of consumerism, consideration should be given to patients' perceptions of interactions with the health care provider as a factor in assessing the quality of care provided. This article describes a study of psychiatric inpatients in a large urban medical center who evaluated 50 commonly used psychiatric nursing actions.

Among patients with cancer, patients with breast cancer are the highest users of CAM. 9,10,29,30 The prevalence of CAM use observed in the BQUAL study population is similar to what has been observed in other populations of patients with breast cancer, ranging from 62% in the Nurses’ Health Study, 31 to 80% in Women’s Healthy Eating and.

Study design and setting. This was a generic qualitative research [] we conducted in the ED of our institution, a bed public research Hospital in Northern Italy, recently awarded the title of Clinical Cancer Centre by the Organization of European Cancer ED is organized in 3 units: Emergency Room, Short-stay Observation Unit, and Emergency Medicine.

Of these patients, 28 were excluded from the study: 13 had cognitive impairment, 7 declined to participate, 4 were transferred to an intensive care unit .Preoperative pulmonary evaluation is important in the management of patients with lung disease who are undergoing elective cardiothoracic or noncardiothoracic surgery.

In some instances, preoperative pulmonary evaluations may also contribute to the management of patients being considered for urgent surgery. The incidence of postoperative pulmonary .Objectives Because of fundamental differences in healthcare systems, US readmission data cannot be extrapolated to the European setting: To investigate the opinions of readmitted patients, their carers, nurses and physicians on predictability and preventability of readmissions and using majority consensus to determine contributing factors that could potentially foresee .
