Metrics details. Those affected by advanced fibrotic interstitial lung diseases have limited treatment options and in the terminal stages, the focus of care is on symptom management. However, quantitatively, little is known about symptom prevalence. A total of titles were screened for eligibility criteria; 23 studies were included for analysis.

Aims and objectives: To summarise the current state of knowledge of symptom clusters research from studies that included, as part of their sample, patients who were receiving primary or adjuvant chemotherapy. Background: Since the concept of a symptom cluster was first introduced into the oncology literature in , only four comprehensive reviews of symptom clusters research in oncology patients were identified that provide insights into this important concept in symptom management research. Design: A comprehensive review of the literature. Methods: A comprehensive literature search was conducted for the years to
Objectives: The purpose of this literature review is to document what is known about the most common symptoms and symptom clusters in adolescents receiving cancer treatment in order to advance the science of symptom management for this unique group of patients. Design: This review identified primary research reports focused on cancer-related symptoms in adolescents using methodology that included objective measurement of the symptom s or self-report from the adolescents. Review methods: The first step of the review was to synthesize evidence to identify the most common symptoms experienced by adolescents during the cancer treatment period. The second step located findings from additional research about these specific symptoms individually or as clusters.
