Abstract

Women diagnosed with breast cancer have many physiological and psychological adjustments to make following mastectomy. The present study described in this article sought to determine the decision-making patterns used by two groups of women. Nurses need to be well informed and professionally confident to provide the individualised care and support deserved by women throghout the breast cancer trajectory. A major outcome of such professional care is confident women who understand their disease, treatments, and methods to manage stresses as they occur.
