Description

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.
