Abstract


Objectif : L’objectif de la présente étude est de mieux comprendre la peur de la récidive à la lumière de l’expérience vécue par des survivantes du cancer des ovaires et des trompes de Fallope.

Méthodologie : L’étude fait appel à un devis descriptif qualitatif. Douze participantes en rémission d’un cancer des ovaires ou des trompes de Fallope ont été recrutées. Les chercheuses ont d’abord procédé à des entrevues semi-structurées en personne puis analysé le contenu et les retranscriptions textuelles des entretiens.

Résultats : La peur de la récidive est une préoccupation non négli- geable chez les femmes en rémission d’un cancer des ovaires. Quatre thèmes ressortent de l’expérience vécue par les participantes à cet égard : a) incertitude entourant la récidive; b) croyances et sources d’inquiétude variées; c) risque de récidive perçu; d) gestion de la peur de la récidive.

Implications : Les in rmières peuvent optimiser le soutien apporté aux survivantes en restant à l’a ût de cette peur de la récidive, en o rant de l’aide psychosociale aux femmes risquant de vivre cette peur, ainsi qu’en enseignant et en renforçant les stratégies d’adaptation.
