    Changes in importance of work and vocational satisfaction during the 2 years after breast cancer surgery and factors associated with this2016In: Journal of cancer survivorship, ISSN 1932-2259, E-ISSN 1932-2267, Vol. 10, no 3, 564-572 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to investigate how women, during the 2 years following breast cancer surgery, rate importance of work and vocational satisfaction, and baseline factors associated with rating over time.

    METHODS: A prospective cohort study of 692 women aged 20-63 included about 4 weeks after a first breast cancer surgery. Register data on treatment and data from six repeated questionnaires during a 2-year follow-up (at baseline, 4, 8, 12, 18, 24 months) were used in two-way mixed repeated analysis of variance and mixed repeated measures analysis of covariance.

    RESULTS: The women rated importance of work (m = 3.74; sd 0.88) (maximum 5) and vocational satisfaction (m = 4.30; sd 1.38) (maximum 6) high during the 2 years. Women with planned chemotherapy rated lower vocational satisfaction and especially so at 4 months after inclusion (F 1, 498 = 8.20; p = 0.004). Higher age, better physical, and mental/social work ability at baseline influenced rating of vocational satisfaction. Supportive colleagues was an important covariate that significantly affected ratings of importance of work as well as vocational satisfaction, i.e., women with better support rated on average higher on these outcomes. The effect of chemotherapy disappeared after including the abovementioned baseline covariates.

    CONCLUSIONS: Women diagnosed with breast cancer in the following 2 years rate importance of work and vocational satisfaction high, which are associated to lower work ability and social support.

    IMPLICATIONS FOR CANCER SURVIVORS: Work is a very important aspect in life also after a cancer diagnosis, which has to be acknowledged when discussing treatment and rehabilitation plans with women with breast cancer. Furthermore, workplace support needs to be assessed as this is an influential factor.

    Sickness absence following breast cancer surgery: a two-year follow-up cohort study2017In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    RATIONALE AND AIM: Most women of working ages with limited breast cancer (BC) have returned to work within the first year after diagnosis. However, little is known about what is happening during this year regarding sickness absence and return to work. Also, the knowledge is very limited about the occurrence of part-time sickness absence after BC diagnosis. Therefore, the aim of this study was to describe occurrence, extent and length of SA during a two-year follow-up after BC surgery and to analyse the association between being SA and type of cancer treatment.

    METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, 497 women responded to questionnaires about different aspects of sickness absence at six occasions during two years after primary BC surgery (at baseline and after 4, 8, 12, 18 and 24 months). Treatment information was obtained from the National breast cancer register. Multinomial logistic regression was used to calculate odds ratios (OR) for likelihood of being sickness absent more than once.

    RESULTS: Two-thirds of the women were sickness absent at baseline; this proportion decreased, especially during the first eight months. At 24 months, 13% were sickness absent. Of all women, 27% never reported sickness absence and 14% were sickness absent at most of the six survey times. At eight months, many had shifted from full- to part-time sickness absence. Women with chemotherapy and/or advanced BC surgery had higher ORs for being sickness absent at most of the follow-ups.

    CONCLUSIONS: Most women returned to work within the first eight months after BC surgery and of those sickness absent after that, most had been part-time sickness absent. Thus, it is important to differentiate between part- and full-time sickness absence in future studies. Special attention should be paid to the impact of chemotherapy and type of surgery on the likelihood of being sickness absent.

    Cancer-related fatigue2011In: The MASCC textbook of cancer supportive care and survivorship / [ed] Olver, Ian N., New York: Springer , 2011, 23-32 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter describes what is currently known about cancer-related fatigue (CRF) in cancer survivors. Significance and prevalence rates are reviewed and definitions are discussed within the context of the need to develop case definitions and phenotypes to advance the science and practice of CRF. Two conceptual frameworks/models for CRF are identified based on emerging evidence that unify the seemingly disparate underlying mechanisms proposed in the literature. While further testing of these models and their propositions are needed, these models can be used to guide future studies investigating CRF and its underlying relationships with other symptoms such as pain, depression, and insomnia. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for the assessment and management of CRF are reviewed. Particular emphasis is given to the assessment and management of the common contributing and treatable factors associated with CRF (i.e., anemia, comorbidities, deconditioning, emotional distress, nutrition, pain, sleep disturbance/insomnia, symptom clusters, and cognitive impairment). Barriers to guideline adherence and exercise prescription are discussed, and patient and provider education is emphasized.

    Expecting the best and being prepared for the worst: structure, profiles, and 2-year temporal stability of dispositional optimism in women with breast cancer2016In: Psycho-Oncology, ISSN 1057-9249, E-ISSN 1099-1611, Vol. 25, no 8, 957-963 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: Dispositional optimism is viewed as a key personality resource for resiliency and has been linked to adjustment among women with breast cancer. The aim was to examine (a) the psychometric proprieties of Life Orientation Test-Revised (LOT-R), (b) the potential independence and co-occurrence of positive and negative dimensions of future outcome expectancies, (c) the longitudinal invariance of LOT-R and the temporal stability of dispositional optimism over 2 years following surgery, and (d) the predictive impact of optimism and pessimism on emotional distress among women with breast cancer.

    METHODS: Data from a prospective study (n = 750) of women with breast cancer were acquired shortly after surgery, and the women were followed up for 2 years. Assessments of LOT-R, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, treatment-related, and demographic variables were subjected to structural equation modeling analysis.

    RESULTS: A bidimensional and temporarily invariant structure of LOT-R displayed acceptable fit indices. Three profiles of future expectancies consisting of optimists, pessimists, and ambiguous were identified. Temporal stability in optimism and pessimism over 2 years was established. Women with higher education displayed higher degrees of pessimism. Baseline dispositional optimism inversely predicted emotional distress at 2 years.

    CONCLUSIONS: The LOT-R should be approached as a bidimensional measure. Co-occurrence of optimism and pessimism may indicate a cautious defensive coping effort in women with breast cancer. The importance of systematic efforts to enhance optimism as well as the capacity to acknowledge both positive and negative future expectancies is emphasized. Copyright © 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
