Resumé

Background:
Denmark has implemented several cancer schools that offer training and support after treatment. However, there are no offers to patients and relatives from the referral until definitive treatment. Therefore we focus on nursing care for patients and relatives in this period of time where their existence is threatened and their ability to cope weakened.
The main question of this investigation was:
How can the nurse in a multidisciplinary team support patients and relatives to master the first few days where cancer is suspected?

We aimed to:

Fase 1:          Explore the needs of support of gynaecological cancer patients and their families, in the early phase of diagnosing.

Fase 2:          Develop a multidisciplinary program for patients and relatives based on the survey of their needs.

Fase 3:          Evaluate the effect of the multidisciplinary program on the anxiety most patients and their relatives experience.

 

Method:

The project is divided into three phases and includes both qualitative and quantitative research

methods as well as development and implementation of a multidisciplinary support program.

 

Conclusion:

The project started in April 2009 and the results from 1st phase of the project are expected in late

August 2009. The results relate to the needs for support for patients and relatives in the early phase

of diagnosing.  

Implications for practice:

Our results may lead to a nursing practice with increased support and involvement of relatives

and patients during the early diagnostic phase.  

The Support Program will not only be a part of the offers that the Department of Gynaecology and

Obstetrics at Odense University Hospital gives the patients but will also be developed with focus on

a high transferability of the concept to other cancer departments.


The project is supported by the Danish Cancer Society with 183.000 $
