Nonpharmacologic strategies for managing common chemotherapy adverse effects: a systematic review.


PURPOSE: Adverse effects of chemotherapy can be severe and can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life. With chemotherapy treatment increasingly administered in the ambulatory setting, there is a need for patients to be informed about effective self-care strategies to manage treatment adverse effects. Advice for patients needs to be based on evidence. This systematic review provides an overview of the intervention research in this area as well as an effectiveness review of nonpharmacologic (self-care) strategies evaluated in high-quality randomized controlled trials (RCTs). METHODS: An extensive literature search was conducted to identify RCTs relating to self-care strategies for reducing nausea/vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, hair loss, or mucositis. Relevant studies published in peer-reviewed journals between 1980 and August 2007 were included. Study characteristics, results and methodologic quality were examined. High-quality RCTs were further analyzed to establish the effectiveness of specific self-care strategies. RESULTS: The search identified 77 RCTs. Findings from RCTs of reasonable quality provide limited support for cognitive distraction, exercise, hypnosis, relaxation, and systematic desensitization to reduce nausea and vomiting, psycho-education for fatigue, and scalp cooling to reduce hair loss. CONCLUSION: Although some strategies seem promising, the quality of the RCTs was generally quite low, making it difficult to draw conclusions about the effectiveness of self-care strategies. Future studies require better design and reporting of methodologic issues to establish evidence-based self-care recommendations for people receiving chemotherapy.

Getting over Public Speaking Phobias

Frequently I hear that speaking in public is the number one fear in America and probably the world. Why is it that people will more likely risk their lives rather than get up in front of a group of strangers or even people who they know well? If this describes you, think for a moment. You become self-conscious and tense. Your blood pressure goes up. Your mind is racing. You are afraid that you won’t remember what to say. You are afraid that you will look like a fool? You even remember your last attempt and have never gotten over that experience.

Fortunately, this does not need to...

Taking the Fear Out of Flying

Flying to your destination in a commercial aircraft is the safest and one of most popular modes of transportation. The amount of regulations and the level of control exceed that of any other method of getting to your destination. Yet, too many people cannot enjoy flying due to a learned and admittedly illogical fear.

Our brain allows us to anticipate. Often this superior function of the human brain provides us a valuable service. Without it many of the typical functions of everyday life would not be possible. However, since most of our brain and body is meant to react and does not...

What are warts?

One of the most undisputed, but unusual, fact is that hypnosis can often be used to successfully get rid of warts. This is because warts are caused by a very specific said of human viruses. The presumption has always been that the use of hypnosis for medical applications is rather limited to only psychosomatic illnesses. However, warts are most deftly not the result of all-the-mind, psychosomatic disorders. One of the earliest cases involving warts being removed to the use of hypnosis happened during World War II. In that case, a medical doctor used the power of suggestion to facilitate...
