Beschreibung

Treatment of patients with cancer is developing fast and more and more are being treated in outpatient clinics. Knowledge of how this is working out is scarce though. Results of studies described in this book demonstrate how Icelandic outpatients with cancer experience having cancer, how they cope and their perception of care and service. This book consists of three parts. The first is a thorough literature review on treatment of cancer and side effects. The second discusses methodological issues relevant to both quantitative and qualitative research. The third part presents findings on patients distress and coping strategies and how they are related. It also describes patients satisfaction with care provided and influential factors. This study should be of interest to nurses and doctors and other professionals working with cancer patients, to students of nursing, medicine and applied social sciences to health contexts.
