David Henry's JCSO Podcast

David Henry's JCSO podcast, March 2016


In the March podcast for The Journal of Community and Supportive Oncology, Dr David Henry discusses a number of articles that center on patient quality of life and overall quality of care, among them, an article on opioid risk assessment in palliative care and three Original Reports, one on the impact of trimodality treatment on arm function and QoL in patients with superior sulcus tumors, a second on patient perceptions and the challenges of oral anticancer therapy, and a third on the use of voluntary reporting to assess symptom burden in cancer patients. A Review article by Jose de Souza and colleagues on financial toxicity in cancer care spans the QoL and quality of care spectrum as it details the implications of the increasing cost of cancer care for the delivery of high-quality, patient-centered care and discusses potential predictors of financial toxicity and instruments that could help quantify financial burden. Also in the line-up are articles on encapsulated irinotecan for hard-to-treat cancer and Case Reports on an uncommon presentation of lung cancer and on acute promyelocytic leukemia presenting as a paraspinal mass.
