Hide Abstract
The literature highlights the value of humour in health-care settings. Humour impacts on the physiological, psychosocial and cognitive well-being of a person. The diagnosis of cancer is extremely stressful, and treatments are difficult. Patients and nurses may use humour as a coping mechanism to contend with the stresses caused directly or indirectly by cancer. This study investigated the use of humour during interactions between patients and nurses in an adult cancer ward.

Chemotherapy in the community: the importance of patient assessment.

Hide Abstract
The use of chemotherapy has expanded considerably in the UK in recent years, with an increase of around 60% in the amount of chemotherapy delivered over a four-year period (National Chemotherapy Advisory Group (NCAG), 2009). This has led to an increased demand for the delivery of chemotherapy, putting pressure on existing cancer services. Combined with the current political agenda which aims to improve the convenience and experience of health for patients this has prompted the reorganisation of chemotherapy services, with a movement away from the delivery of chemotherapy in dedicated cancer centres to community-based models of care. This article discusses the implications of these changes for community nurses with regard to their role in the assessment of patients receiving chemotherapy.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
