Abstract

Since cancer is a long-term disease it has far-reaching implications for the patient. Nurse and patient are in contact with one another for prolonged periods during treatment. It is important to develop education programmes and community support services during these periods of close patient contact in order to lighten the burden of nursing staff and to encourage patient independence .
