Les besoins des patients atteints d’un cancer avancé

Margaret I. Fitch

Abstract


De nombreux changements surviennent chez la personne atteinte

d’une maladie fatale. Ces changements dépassent le simple domaine

physique et incluent des conséquences psychosociales, pratiques et

spirituelles. Si la maladie s’aggrave, l’impact de ces changements est

intensifié. Les infirmières qui soignent des patients atteints d’un

cancer avancé doivent pouvoir effectuer des interventions

appropriées si elles veulent favoriser l’adaptation de ces derniers.

Cet article dégage les besoins des patients atteints d’un cancer

avancé et souligne des approches qui pourraient être utilisées par les

infirmières en oncologie dans la prise en charge de ces patients. Les

données proviennent de plus d’une décennie d’entrevues auprès de

patients sur leur expérience avec le cancer, des écrits sur les besoins

des patients et de consultations avec les prestataires de soins. La

perspective globale est de voir dans les êtres humains des entités biopsycho-

socio-spirituelles. L’adoption de cette perspective a des

répercussions sur l’évaluation des patients atteints d’un cancer

avancé et sur les interventions liées à leur prise en charge.
