Women With Breast Cancer: Experience of Chemotherapy-Induced Pain: Triangulation of Methods
by Hellerstedt-Börjesson, Susanne RN; Nordin, Karin PhD; Fjällskog, Marie-Louise PhD, MD; Holmström, Inger K. PhD, RN; Arving, Cecilia PhD, RN
Mrs. Hellerstedt-Börjesson writes:
This research highlights improvements needed in cancer care communication and treatment for women related to chemotherapy-induced pain (CHIP) during adjuvant chemotherapy after breast cancer. The impact of CHIP in these women’s daily life is profound as described in the voices of these women in this study. These voices need to be heard by readers of CANCER NURSING and by other health care providers in cancer care.
