Tai Chi for cancer survivors: A systematic review toward consensus-based guidelines.

Cancer Med 2021 Sep 17. Epub 2021 Sep 17.

Penn State Cancer Institute, Penn State College of Medicine, Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA.

To manage acute, long-term, and late effects of cancer, current guidelines recommend moderate-to-vigorous intensity aerobic and resistance exercise. Unfortunately, not all cancer survivors are able or willing to perform higher intensity exercise during difficult cancer treatments or because of other existing health conditions. Tai Chi is an equipment-free, multicomponent mind-body exercise performed at light-to-moderate intensity that may provide a more feasible alternative to traditional exercise programs for some cancer survivors.

A Psychosocial Support Program for Young Adult Childhood Cancer Survivors in Austria: a Qualitative Evaluation Study.

J Cancer Educ 2021 Sep 14. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Many adolescents and young adult (AYAs) childhood cancer survivors face disease- or therapy-related late-effects, which limit their participation in various areas of daily life. AYAs are often left alone in our health care system, and many worry about their ability to cope with long-term sequelae, and some are even lost to follow-up. Therefore, in the present study, a targeted aftercare program was developed and evaluated with the goal of facilitating three important "life skills": (1) self-perception, (2) social interaction and conflict management, and (3) self-conscious communication of support needs.
