Soutien pratique pour les femmes atteintes de cancer du sein

Sally Thorne, Lynda Balneaves, Judy Reimer

Abstract


Bien que le soutien émotionnel, social et informationnel représente un besoin reconnu chez les femmes vivant avec le cancer du sein, les aspects pratiques de ce soutien n’ont guère attiré l’attention du monde de la recherche. Cependant, les défenseurs des intérêts des patientes et les chercheurs qui se penchent sur le vécu subjectif du cancer du sein constatent que le soutien pratique peut être particulièrement important pour certaines femmes. Afin de documenter quelques-uns des aspects de la problématique du soutien pratique et d’augmenter la visibilité de cet élément du vécu de la maladie, un groupe de défense des intérêts des patientes a effectué une enquête préliminaire sur les besoins en matière de soins de soutien des femmes vivant ou ayant vécu avec le cancer du sein. Si on se fie aux réponses des 100 répondantes de l’enquête, il apparaît que le soutien pratique pourrait fort bien rester un besoin non satisfait, vu le climat actuel des soins de santé.
