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.

Self-assessment of Goal Achievements Within a Gynecological Cancer Rehabilitation Counseling

Self-assessment of Goal Achievements Within a Gynecological Cancer Rehabilitation Counseling

Adellund Holt, Kamila, PhD, RN; Hansen, Dorte G., MD, PhD; Mogensen, Ole, MD, DMSc; Jensen, Pernille T., MD, PhD

"This article adds to knowledge of how women treated for their gynecological cancer are able to join more actively in their rehabilitation and be involved by focusing on 'what matters to them'. Before and during this study, I became more curious on how involvement and goal setting contribute to women's experience of their own health. Future work may focus on the impact of the appreciative perspective among health professionals on women´s goal setting and goal achievement in the person-centered rehabilitation."
