be better integrated into active cancer treatment and survivorship

and it should be provided mental health later interventions.

Breast cancer significantly impacts dimensions of

quality of life such as mental health, one’s level of activity, fam-

ily well-being, physical concerns (symptoms and pain), treatment

satisfaction, emotional well-being, sexual intimacy, and social



The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of the type

of surgery on the quality of life of women being treated for breast

cancer, based on the comparison of samples of women who have

undergone different types of surgery.


Our sample consists of 90 Portuguese women divided

into three groups of 30 participants each. The first group under-

went radical surgery inorder to treat their breast cancer. The second

group of women had conservative surgery as a breast cancer treat-

ment. Finally, the last group of women did not have any type of

surgical intervention. We use a socio-demographic questionnaire

and the Portuguese version of the EORTC QLQ-30 as measurement

instruments. The sample consists of patients froma central hospital

in Lisbon, Portugal, and the data were collected anonymously.


We find that in all dimensions of quality of life measured,

including general health, physical functioning, social roles, and all

emotional, cognitive, and social dimensions, the group of women

who underwent radical surgery shows lower scores when com-

pared to the other two groups. This indicates that this group has

lower levels of quality of life.


The use of surgery for the treatment of breast cancer

leads to a diminished quality of life following surgical intervention.

Mindfulness based interventions (MBIs) have shown

efficacy in improving psychological symptoms including depres-

sion and anxiety in cancer patients (pts). The study aimed to explore

feasibility and reproducibility of MBIs in an Italian Cancer Centre

measuring biochemical and psychological parameters.


In this pilot prospective case-control study, we

recruited newly diagnosed pts receiving adjuvant chemotherapy

(CT). A MBIs program was designed consisting of 2.5 hours weekly

for 8 weeks and, including meditation, yoga and body scan. Mate-

rial for 45minutes (mn) home daily practice was provided. Primary

endpoint was to evaluate feasibility. Secondary endpoints were

assessment of quality of life (QoL), psychological and biochemical

outcomes of stress, tested at baseline (W0), W4, W8, W24, W48. PSS

(Perceived Stress Reduction), POMS (profile of mood states scores),

EuroQoL (EQ-5D-3L) were administered.


Ten pts underwent MBIs program arm. We present pre-

liminary results, while data of control arm are being collected.

All pts were female, two pts (20%) dropped out. Median age

was 56 years. All received adjuvant CT, 5/8 received radiotherapy

and hormone therapy. Mean of sessions attending was 6.8 (76%).

Median daily practice was 30 mn. EQ-5D item for depression and

anxiety showed decreasing trend in mean score from moderate to

light (


= 0.15) and significant improvement of auto-perceived QoL

was observed comparing W0 and W8 (


= 0.02)


In a sensitive setting such as start CT, we found high

pts compliance to MBIs. Improvement in self-perceived QoL after

starting program was found and comparing anxious-depressive

symptoms outcomes with control arm is still needed.

compare all available psychosocial interventions using both direct

and indirect data.


In this systematic review and network meta-analysis,

we searched the Embase, Medline, PsycINFO, and the Cochrane cen-

tral register of controlled trials for randomized controlled trials

(RCT) published before Oct, 2016, that compared active treat-

ments dealing with psychosocial problems in PCa patients after

treatment. The primary outcome was health-related quality of

life improvement as measured by the 36-Item Short-Form Health

Survey (SF-36). Psychologicalmorbiditywas assessedwith theHos-

with PROSPERO, number CRD42016049621.


We screened 113 potentially eligible studies and identi-
