A longitudinal study https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:29841 n = 116) then follow-up surveys 2 (n = 82) and 4 months (n = 50) later. The validated survey measured 34 needs across five domains. Weighted generalised estimating equations were used to identify factors associated with having ≥1 current or future moderate-to-high unmet need. Results: The overall proportion of patients reporting ≥1 moderate-or-high-level need did not significantly change over time (baseline = 70 % to 4 months = 75 %), although there was a non-significant reduction in needs for patients who had a complete resection (71 to 63 %) and an increase in patients with locally advanced (73 to 85 %) or metastatic (66 to 88 %) disease. Higher levels of pain (OR 6.1, CI 2.4–15.3), anxiety (OR 3.3, CI 1.5–7.3) and depression (OR 3.2, CI 1.7–6.0) were significantly associated with current needs. People with pain (OR 4.9, CI 1.5–15.4), metastatic disease (OR 2.7, CI 0.7–10.0) or anxiety (OR 2.5, CI 0.7–8.6) had substantially higher odds of reporting needs at their next survey. The prevalence of needs was highest in the physical/daily living and psychological domains (both 53 % at baseline). Pain and anxiety had respectively the strongest associations with these domains. Conclusions: Careful and continued attention to pain control and psychological morbidity is paramount in addressing significant unmet needs, particularly for people with metastatic disease. Research on how best to coordinate this is crucial.]]> Wed 11 Apr 2018 10:08:14 AEST ]]> Are Australian oncology health professionals burning out?: a view from the trenches https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:7125 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:34:11 AEDT ]]> Fixed-dose-rate gemcitabine combined with cisplatin in patients with inoperable biliary tract carcinomas https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:12335 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:15:52 AEDT ]]> Immunohistochemistry for SDHB divides gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) into 2 distinct types https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:10771 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:13:54 AEDT ]]> From inside the bubble: migrants' perceptions of communication with the cancer team https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:12251 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:08:09 AEDT ]]> Describing patterns of care in pancreatic cancer: a population-based study https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:27354 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:39:39 AEDT ]]> Factors associated with quality of care for patients with pancreatic cancer in Australia https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:25904 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:27:53 AEDT ]]> A tsunami of unmet needs: pancreatic and ampullary cancer patients' supportive care needs and use of community and allied health services https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:26942 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:27:30 AEDT ]]> Using a Delphi process to determine optimal care for patients with pancreatic cancer https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:24459 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:17:25 AEDT ]]> The impact on health-related quality of life in the first 12 months: a randomised comparison of preoperative short-course radiation versus long-course chemoradiation for T3 rectal cancer (Trans-Tasman Radiation Oncology Group Trial 01.04) https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:24380 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:16:18 AEDT ]]> Determinants of outcomes following resection for pancreatic cancer - a population-based study https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:24886 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:14:55 AEDT ]]> A bridge between cultures: interpreters' perspectives of consultations with migrant oncology patients https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:23157 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:10:35 AEDT ]]> Randomized trial of short-course radiotherapy versus long-course chemoradiation comparing rates of local recurrence in patients with T3 rectal cancer: Trans-Tasman Radiation Oncology Group Trial 01.04 https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:22369 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:09:29 AEDT ]]>
