Author on Call

The function of the “Author on Call” blog is to allow our readers and authors to interact with each other in a unique way. A few select authors will be chosen to share on the blog aspects of their papers that were especially meaningful to them personally or points that may not have made it into their published report. Readers will then have the opportunity to provide comments and questions, to which the authors will respond.

At times, as seen in our first entry, we will also post separate entries to the blog on various special topics that we feel would be informational or that we welcome your feedback on.

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.
