  A Qualitative Study of Japanese Patients' Perspectives on Post-treatment Care for Gynecological Cancer
■ 概要
  The perspectives and expectations of Japanese gynecological cancer patients with regard to post-treatment follow-up were explored qualitatively. Seven themes emerged as follows: (1) living with uncertainty, (2) monitoring recurrence, (3) test content and frequency, (4) coping with “another illness,” (5) provider communication and attitude, (6) holistic care, and (7) compromising with the reality of changed body. While these Japanese gynecological patients regarded follow-up as an opportunity for reassurance, they also wanted treatment for adverse effects and the opportunity to discuss their concerns.
