Abstract [en]

Background. As staff members prioritize medical resources forpatients, it is imperative to find out whether their assessments ofpatients’ health status agree with patients’ assessments. The degree towhich physicians and nurses can identify the distress, anxiety, anddepression experienced by adolescents recently diagnosed withcancer was examined here. Procedure. Adolescents undergoingchemotherapy (13–19 years, n¼53), physicians (n¼48), and nurses(n¼53) completed a structured telephone interview, 4–8 weeksafter diagnosis or relapse, investigating disease and treatment-relateddistress, anxiety, and depression. Results. The accuracy of staffratings of physical distress could be considered acceptable.However, problems of a psychosocial nature, which were frequentlyoverestimated, were difficult for staff to identify. Staff underestimatedthe distress caused by mucositis and worry about missing schoolmore than they overestimated distress. These aspects were some ofthe most prevalent and overall worst according to the adolescents.Both physicians and nurses overestimated levels of anxiety anddepression. Nurses tended to show higher sensitivity than physiciansfor distress related to psychosocial aspects of distress, whilephysicians tended to show higher accuracy than nurses for physicaldistress. Conclusions. Staff was reasonably accurate at identifyingphysical distress in adolescents recently diagnosed with cancerwhereas psychosocial problems were generally poorly identified.Thus, the use of staff ratings as a ‘‘test’’ to guide specific supportseems problematic. Considering that the accuracy of staff ratingsoutside a research study is probably lower, identification of andaction taken on adolescent problems in relation to cancer diagnosisand treatment need to rely on direct communication.

Abstract [en]

Aim: One aspect of organizing medical follow-up for adult survivors of childhood cancer is to determine to what extent the former patient experiences a need for health services. In the present paper, we studied how the healthcare needs, both subjectively and objectively, were fulfilled for our former patients. Methods: 335 survivors over 18 y of age, with a follow-up time of more than 5 y after completion of therapy, were sent a questionnaire probing their present use of health services. Results: The response rate was 73%. A majority ( 60%) of the survivors had no regular follow-up visits, and 42% of these reported that they missed not having one. More than one third were thus far dissatisfied with the follow-up programme. Only 3% of those who had regular follow-ups found them "unnecessary''. Complaints subjectively related to their diseases or treatments were reported by 47%. Out of all responders, 34% did not miss having regular follow-up visits. Neither perceived disease-related complaints nor radiation therapy was a predictor for having a scheduled follow-up visit.
