  • Process of inner change in advanced age: a qualitative study of older adults in their early 90 s

    Komatsu H., Niimura H., Yagasaki K.

    BMC Geriatrics (BMC Geriatrics)  22 ( 1 )  2022.12

     View Summary

    Background: The number of nonagenarians is growing globally. The promotion of mental wellbeing is increasingly important. The aim of this study was to explore mental wellbeing and psychological experiences of older adults in their early 90 s who were living at home. Methods: We conducted a qualitative study using semi-structured face-to-face interviews with 20 older adults in their early 90 s. A thematic analysis, according to Braun and Clarke, was used to analyze data. Results: An inner process of older adults in their early 90 s was revealed; its three themes were the “reality of aging,” “seeking emptiness of the mind,” and “still moving on.” Older adults in this study experienced functional decline, regret, and loneliness. They were tired of life and nearly gave up. Emptying their minds helped them reset their attitudes and find a way to move on. After realizing that negative thinking did not help anything, they focused on what they could do and their daily routines. Perceived social usefulness validated participants’ self-worth. However, a few were consistently active without negative perceptions of aging. Conclusion: Understanding the psychological process and mental wellbeing in later life aids in the development of practical healthcare policies to assist the growing oldest-old population in cope with age-related challenges and improve their mental wellbeing.

  • Cancer survivorship care for post-treatment cancer survivors in Japan: A secondary analysis of a multinational study across Asia–Pacific countries

    Yamamoto S., Arao H., Yagasaki K., Komatsu H.

    Asia-Pacific Journal of Oncology Nursing (Asia-Pacific Journal of Oncology Nursing)  9 ( 11 )  2022.11

    ISSN  23475625

     View Summary

    Objective: The global understanding of cancer survivorship care leads to optimal care delivery for cancer survivors. This study aimed to assess the perceptions of Japanese oncology nurses regarding cancer survivorship care and explore the factors influencing the provision of survivorship care. Methods: A questionnaire survey of oncology nurses was conducted as part of a multinational, cross-sectional survey. A 29-item measurement scale with four subscales regarding survivorship care was used to assess nurses’ perceptions regarding responsibility, confidence, and frequency of practice for cancer survivors. Additionally, we investigated a list of 16 factors influencing the provision of survivorship care. Results: Among 181 oncology nurses, the mean adjusted scores for survivorship care items were 65.6–84.7, 16.8–44.7, and 29.2–47.2 for responsibility, confidence, and frequency, respectively. Significant correlations were observed in the subscales for frequency of care with responsibility (r ​= ​0.315–0.385, P ​< ​0.001) and confidence (r ​= ​0.428–0.572, P ​< ​0.001). Participants with >10 years of experience in cancer care reported more frequent performance on surveillance than those with ≤ 5 years of experience (P ​= ​0.03). The major barriers for providing survivorship care by oncology nurses were lack of knowledge and skills (87.8%), lack of time (81.8%), and not seeing the value of survivorship care (79.6%). Conclusions: Oncology nurses face many challenges regarding survivorship care, even though they recognize their responsibility. Educational support for oncology nurses is warranted to overcome impeding factors and improve confidence.

  • Impact of a web-based educational program on Japanese nurses tobacco cessation practice and attitudes in oncology settings

     View Summary

    Purpose: To evaluate the effects of a short web-based educational program on Japanese nurses’ self-reported attitudes toward tobacco cessation and their use of interventions to help smokers to quit. Design: Prospective, single-group design with a pre-educational survey, a short web-based educational program, and a follow-up survey at 3 months. Methods: Clinical nurses were asked to view two prerecorded webcasts about helping smokers quit. They completed two online surveys, one at baseline and one at a 3-month follow-up. Generalized linear models were used to determine changes in nurses’ self-reported routine practice after the study intervention. Findings: A total of 1401 nurses responded to the baseline survey, 678 of whom completed the follow-up survey. Compared with baseline, nurses at follow-up were more likely to advise smokers to quit (odds ratio [OR] = 1.45, 95% confidence interval [CI: 1.15, 1.82]), assess patients’ interest in quitting (OR = 1.46, 95% CI [1.01, 1.04]), and assist patients with smoking cessation (OR = 1.34, 95% CI [1.04, 1.72]). However, the proportion of nurses who consistently recommended resources for tobacco cessation did not significantly improve at follow-up. Conclusions: This study provides preliminary evidence that a web-based educational program can increase nurses’ implementation of tobacco dependence interventions in cancer care practice. Sustaining these educational efforts could increase nurses’ involvement in providing these interventions, encourage nurses to refer patients to cessation resources, and support nurses’ attitudes towards their role in smoking cessation. Clinical relevance: Our short web-based educational program can increase nurses’ use of tobacco-dependence interventions in cancer care practice. This role can be enhanced with additional information about existing cessation resources that nurses could use to refer patients for support post-discharge. Japanese nurses, when properly educated, are willing and significant contributors to promote tobacco use cessation for cancer patients. The contribution can be facilitated through nursing care protocol that integrate tobacco use cessation interventions within evidence-based cancer care approaches.

  • The relationship between work-related outcomes and symptoms in early breast cancer survivors receiving adjuvant endocrine therapy

    Nakao M., Komatsu H., Hayashida T., Takahashi M., Seki T., Yagasaki K.

    Asia-Pacific Journal of Oncology Nursing (Asia-Pacific Journal of Oncology Nursing)  9 ( 3 ) 174 - 178 2022.03

    ISSN  23475625

     View Summary

    Objective: This study examined the relationship between symptom burdens and work-related outcomes, including work participation and overall work impairment (OWI) among breast cancer survivors (BCS) receiving adjuvant endocrine therapy (AET). Methods: This was a cross-sectional study with 140 BCS of working age receiving AET. Data were collected using self-report questionnaires that included an assessment of symptoms and their employment status, and OWI. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and multiple logistic regression analysis. Results: A total of 111 (79%) survivors reported being employed at the time of the survey. Symptom burdens were not associated with unemployment. Of the 110 working BCS receiving AET, symptom burdens were significantly related to a higher degree of OWI (OR ​= ​2.14, 95% CI, 1.58–2.89, P ​≤ ​0.001). Conclusions: Participating BCS receiving AET continued to work while experiencing symptoms, with survivors who experienced high symptom burdens being negatively affected in their work life. Healthcare providers need to assess and manage symptoms and their impact on work, with the help of employers, to improve the quality of work life of BCS receiving AET.

  • Rediscovering the Joy of Eating in Older Adults With Gastrointestinal Cancer Undergoing Treatment: A Qualitative Study

    Cancer Care Research Online.  2 ( 1 ) e017 2022

    Research paper (scientific journal), Joint Work, Accepted

     View Summary

    Background: Cancer treatment significantly impacts the diet of older adults with cancer. Professional support is required for such patients to manage their eating problems at home.
    Objective: To explore the dietary experiences of older adults with gastrointestinal cancer undergoing treatment, and their perceptions of how the disease and its treatment affected their eating.
    Interventions/Methods:Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 21 older patients (aged ≥ 70 years) with gastrointestinal cancer in Japan. Interview data were analyzed using thematic analysis.
    Results:Three key themes were identified: impact on daily life, significance of eating, and rediscovering the joy of eating. Participants experienced dietary changes and reduced social interactions. Challenging situations allowed them to reassess their eating values and habits. By seeking their own coping strategies, they rediscovered the pleasure of eating.
    Conclusions:Older adults with gastrointestinal cancer tried to cope with dietary changes based on their reaffirmed values while seeking the joy of eating.
    Implications for Practice: A multidisciplinary healthcare team can support patients’ self-management by seeking to understand patients’ eating values and habits rather than focusing only on patients’ weight control and nutritional status.
