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.
