Abstract


  • Individuals affected by cancer live in a world that is at times

    dominated by biomedicine, treatment and technology. Most

    of the time, however, those in our care experience their cancer

    and treatment in a social world and in one that is very personal.

    Cancer nurses, therefore, need to be informed about the

    technology (therapy and developments of) and also about the

    individual’s context, values and beliefs in order to enable them

    to make informed choices and to be successful in managing

    treatment.
